HP's gdb Autoconfig classified RedHat ia64 7.2 as a configuration with a 'oldld'
and I thought maybe it was just the autoconfig bdf files that were wrong
so I classified the linuxoldld as a elf64 and got a problem with the
the elf_em.h missing:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
  ia64*-*-*elf64*)
    targ_defvec=bfd_elf64_ia64_vec
    targ_selvecs=bfd_elf64_ia64_little_header_vec
    ;;
+ ia64-unknown-linuxoldld*)
+   targ_defvec=bfd_elf64_ia64_vec
+   targ_selvecs=bfd_elf64_ia64_little_header_vec
+   ;;
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Unfortunatley that results in:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
cc -c -DHOST_IA64    -I. -I. -I./../include   elf64-ia64.c
elf64-ia64.c:43:20: elf_em.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [elf64-ia64.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/piet/src/kwdb/src/bfd'
make: *** [all-bfd] Error 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looks like David Mosberger version of bdf/elf64-ia64.c has replaced
the Copyright 1993 version in HP's code.

Looks like I picked up code that's very out of date.
