Between pass 1 and pass 2, there is the Locking in, and here it says :
"Now that the adjusted linker is installed, you have to remove the Binutils
build and source directories.".
Also in Ch6 | Re-adjusting the toolchain (just before the binutils build),
we can read :
"You can now remove the Binutils source and build directories".

As I see, there is no problem with the binutils-build and sourcce dirs !!!!!
