GNU linker), nm (for listing symbols from object files), objcopy (for
copying and translating object files), objdump (for displaying

the contents of an archive), readelf (for displaying detailed
information about binary files), size (for listing the section sizes
of an object or archive file), strings (for listing printable strings
from files), strip (for discarding symbols), and addr2line (for
converting addresses to file and line).

A bug fix update:    *  Fix a slowdown in objdump.      * Re-enable gold for
PowerPC64 and s390x.     * Have readelf display extra symbol information at the
