Comment (by boklm):

 In branch `bug_16472_v2` I added a commit updating binutils to 2.30:

 I also added a test commit adding two `tor-browser.git` patches fixing the
 build, but I am not sure that they are correct:

 However, after updating gcc to 6.4.0, it seems those two patches are not
 needed anymore (and make the build fail). So I think we should update both
 binutils and gcc at the same time.
