You should be ok by doing that.  There is a note in the ["Locking in" 
Glibc] section that covers this issue specifically.  It suggest you skip 
the "make -C ld install" step, but i think thats based on the assumption 
that you deleted both directories.  Since binutils is built in a 
seperate directory there should be nothing in the binutils-source dir 
except the original files from the tar ball.
