Thanks for your report! Just a note here that bfd object relocation, while still supported in the code, is now obsolete vis a vis gcl's own custom object relocator, now the default.
For simplicity, I've removed a local snapshot of binutils from the sources, so locbfd will not work out of the box. This needs to be cleaned up, both on the local snapshot end, and the fallback procedure when failing to locate the system binutils you report below.

I'd yank bfd support completely but for the possibility it might come in handy in the future, and given that so much work went into it. However, it is really hard to support a separate subtree of another project in gcl's source. I'm getting some help on the latter now on gcl-devel. Hopefully this will make the path ahead clear.

In the configure script, lines 6546--57, the location of libbfd.a
and libiberty.a is ascertained and if this is unsuccessful, then
default values are put in.

I would suggest, after much teeth gnashing, that the configure script halt at this point and emit the message that the user should run the script again with

--enable-locbfd
