For some reason the ia64 toolchain like to find these...

Can anyone suggest what has actually caused this to happen?  I have
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=n.



Using gcc (GCC) 3.5.0 20040206 (experimental)


Also, I am heartily sick of this gunk from the assembler:

{standard input}:20882: Warning: This is the location of the conflicting usage  {standard input}:20917: Warning: Use of 'ld4' may violate RAW dependency 'DBR#' (data)
{standard input}:20917: Warning: Only the first path encountering the conflict is reported
{standard input}:20882: Warning: This is the location of the conflicting usage
{standard input}:20917: Warning: Use of 'ld4' may violate RAW dependency 'DBR#' (data)

Has that been fixed yet?  If so, which is a good version of binutils to
start using?

Thanks.
