This actually has nothing to do with XFS. It's a known incompatibility
with the existing 2.4 kernels and the latest release of binutils. It's
partially fixed in 2.4.17 and supposed to be completely fixed in 2.4.18.
You can download the binutils package from potato and do a manual dpkg
installation. The build will work.
