Summary     : A GNU collection of cross-compilation binary utilities
Description :
Binutils is a collection of binary utilities, including ar (for
creating, modifying and extracting from archives), as (a family of GNU
assemblers), gprof (for displaying call graph profile data), ld (the
GNU linker), nm (for listing symbols from object files), objcopy (for
copying and translating object files), objdump (for displaying
information from object files), ranlib (for generating an index for
the contents of an archive), readelf (for displaying detailed
information about binary files), size (for listing the section sizes
of an object or archive file), strings (for listing printable strings
from files), strip (for discarding symbols), and addr2line (for
converting addresses to file and line).

Update Information:

Update to binutils-2.26-12. This brings with it plugin support which permits
this binutils to be used with LTO support from current cross-gcc.  ----  Update
to latest binutils package and fix the bits that cause compilation failures with
gcc-6. Further, drop sh-elf support from the SH binutils to solve the problem
with binutils being unable to determine whether to use the elf32-sh-linux or the
elf32-shl format to decode a binary (#1296814).

  [ 1 ] Bug #1296814 - sh binutils: Matching formats: elf32-sh-linux elf32-shl
