If this means that binutils-2.20.1 and binutils-build do in fact still 
exist, and that you have not been removing source/build directories 
after each package installation, that could very well be the source of 
your problem. Even if not, it is certainly one potential issue with your 
build and an indicator that you have missed stuff in the book and may 
have overlooked even more. Read page 5.3 *very* closely.
