./support/script/graph-depends > dependencies.dot
dot -Tpdf -o dependencies.pdf dependencies.dot
<Your Preferred PDF Viewer> dependencies.pdf

and check what is pointing to "binutils". The "dot" command is part of
the "graphviz" package in most distributions.

Another solution is to pastebin your full .config file somewhere and
give us the link, we may be able to point what's triggering the target
binutils build.
