That would be sufficient for my needs (a matching gdb would be useful
too, I'm not sure if that is part of binutils).

But I don't think my concern was misplaced: having gone back through
the thread for the past couple of weeks, there were certainly phrases

  "drop all traces of a.out support"
  "if you need to generate new ones (?) unpack a 2.2.6 system"

with the ports solution mentioned only "if we really have to have a.out".
