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.
