Ouch, I hadn't noticed that.

Our test environment includes many (virtualised) fbsd systems but they
might all have a non-archaic binutils installed in /usr/local.

The fbsd developers' GNU/Linux envy is projected at GPL hate which in
turn badly hurts their own system.  They are sure that the GPLs are
commercially non-viable in theory, and that GNU/Linux is 100 times more
successful in practice does not affect their theory faith.
