Ok, I've been looking at the logs from a fresh build, got a few

1. Should Chapter 6 binutils be using /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld as
it's linker?

2. Should Chapter 6 GMP (i.e the package after binutils) be
using /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld?

3. Should Chapter 6 GCC be using the same linker?

It looks like all packages after GCC are using /usr/bin/ld, but I guess
by then the damage is done? Seems to me that everything after the final
binutils build ought to be using it...
