I am trying to install binutils-2.22 on Ubuntu 10.04. I have downloaded the source code of binutils-2.22, configured it with a custom prefix (to not conflict with the system binutils) and built it.

However, I am having trouble linking programs with the new binutils. A program that linked just fine with the system binutils, now gives the following errors at link time:

followed by a slew of "undefined reference" errors.

Do I need to do some additional configuration to get binutils-2.22 to work?
