[Gcl-devel] help needed for a newbie - problems with bfd

I've just downloaded the current release of gcl (2.6.7) as I want to
install Maxima on my system for evaluation. I ran ./configure with
--enable-ansi --prefix=/usr
and this ran through OK, so I typed 'make'
Various bits compiled OK then it fell over complaining that
it couldn't find bfd.h and bfdlink.h.

After a certain amount of rooting around I discovered that these
are part of binutils (libbinutils2.devel on my Mandriva distro).
However, the matching version of libbinutils2-devel (2.15) is no
longer available (as far as I can seen) so I downloaded 2.16
along with libbinutils (2.16) and installed these. That seems to be OK
but when I go back and try make again I get:
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bill/gcl-2.6.7/o'
gcc -c -Wall -DVOL=volatile -fsigned-char -pipe -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer  
-I/home/bill/gcl-2.6.7/o -I../h -I../gcl-tk fat_string.c  
fat_string.c:229: error: syntax error before "bfd_combined_table_update"
fat_string.c:229: warning: return type defaults to `int'
fat_string.c: In function `bfd_combined_table_update':
fat_string.c:232: error: `false' undeclared (first use in this function)
fat_string.c:232: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
fat_string.c:232: error: for each function it appears in.)
fat_string.c:235: error: `true' undeclared (first use in this function)
Two queries: a) shouldn't the configure script pick up the lack of
the neccesary header files, and b) what do I do next to get gcl to
