If this is the 1st pass of binutils failing, then clearly, it is
completely wrong for your system to be setting the program interpreter to

It looks to me as if you have accidentally edited the specs file for your
host compiler in a previous attempt. If this is the case then the fix is
simple, undo the edit that was made to your host gcc's specs file. To find
out where your host specs file is, try this:

  gcc -print-file-name=specs
