Surprisingly, this did not occur to me until the Developer's
Summit report on other architectures, so it's probably not
obvious to most people.
For the record, then: binutils 2.12.0 is *required* by IA64,
and so it's required going forward.
Personally, I've been quiet since my initial Alpha breakage
complaints, except to try to help track things down once
in a while, since I had since realized this was an issue.
