OK, there were two issues with your system bfd library:

1)  configure uses the output frmo gcc -Wl,-M -static to find the path
    to your static bfd library.  This is not the most robust but works
    in general.  On your system, this command also outputs a line like
    ___/usr/lib........libbfd.a, which messes up the LIBS variable.  A
    simple fix is addinf the "grep '^/'" in :

                MP=`$CC [ -Wl,-M ] -static -o foo foo.c -lbfd -liberty 2>&1 | 
tr '()' '\012\012' | grep '^/' | $AWK '{print $NF}' | sort | uniq`

2)  Even with this, there is a problem linking on your system with
    libbfd.a libiberty.a.  The following is a missing symbol:

gcc -o raw_gcl  \
        -L.   -lgcl -lm  
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.2.2/libiberty.a -lreadline -lncurses -lc 
 In function `_bfd_elf_strtab_finalize':
: undefined reference to `htab_create_alloc'
 In function `merge_strings':
: undefined reference to `htab_create_alloc'
 In function `merge_strings':
: undefined reference to `htab_create_alloc'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [raw_gcl] Error 1

I don't know if the latest bfd has another library requirement, but in
any case, we'll probably need to look at this a bit more carefully
with attention to robustness.  Luckily, we have the following option,
which works without problem:

./configure --disable-statsysbfd --enable-locbfd

I've compiled a tree with these switches together with --enable-ansi
in my home directory on your machine.  I've run the test suite, and
its standard 2.5.2.

Perhaps you could ask the gentoo/gcl person to add this to their

Take care,
