[Xen-devel] Ubuntu 14.04 Binutils Breaks Xen EFI Boot

Xen Developers,

When building Xen for EFI boot on Ubuntu 14.04, if I compile binutils from the 
Ubuntu source package, using the --enable-targets=x86_64-pep flag, as required, 
then I cannot compile Xen. In fact, after I compile binutils with this flag, I 
can no longer compile binutils either. I get an error during configure: 

        configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
        See `config.log' for more details.

The log file merely repeats this information, at least on the current Ubuntu 
14.04 I am running. When I get this error, I cannot fix it by purging the 
binutils package. If I reinstall the entire OS, problems go away but I cannot 
compile Xen for EFI, because my binutils is not configured for the x86_64-pep 

I have been able to compile Xen EFI boot on Ubuntu 14.04, about 2 weeks ago, 
and boot successfully using EFI. Everything just worked. Now, following the 
same procedure, some change to something that got upgraded in the last 2 weeks 

Is anyone else currently compiling Xen for EFI boot, on Ubuntu 14.04? Is there 
another flag that will compile binutils in a way that does not break gcc/ld?
