Config is attached.
Buildroot snapshot is r22940.

Yes, apparently the LDFLAGS need to be fixed too.

I agree with Hamish on this one.

As you can see buildroot can make its own toolchain and the possibility 
to use external toolchain is not that much in use - meaning there are still
packages that might fail when compiled with external toolchain as we must 
take into account compiler provided headers and libs.

It is almost impossible to make all toolchain/package/architecture combinations
work out of the box. Some combinations work without a glitch (wide usage), 
while others need minor fixes, as in your case, to make things going on :)

He probably ran the make twice.. Remove the binutils-* folders in toolchain 
build_dir and rerun make.
