I had the problem compiling the libssp bit, which seems the norm with
recent versions of gcc, and I used the "--enable-libssp=no" workaround
during the configure step.

I used the Debian source for binutils, but there are patches that it
comes with. It was unclear whether they needed to be applied, or were
already in the Debian version. Anyway, I skipped them, and everything
seems to have gone well. That is something I need to look into further.

I used the 2.19.1 binutils, which seems to be the latest.
