Debian stable comes with binutils-188.8.131.52.37-1.
Unstable comes with binutils-184.108.40.206.27-2.

According to the version number it should be fine.
I checked on the kdb web pages for clues and saw that I needed a recent
version of binutils.
I then verified that my version was ok.
"locate bfd.h" says there's no such file on any of the 2 systems.
Guess I should install binutils from source ?
Does anyone know whether these files are in another .deb package.

I am very gratefull that you provide XFS packages for most distributions.
