Well, for starters, we no longer support the old gcc wrapper.
Instead, we patch binutils, gcc, and gdb to implement support
for <arch>-linux-uclibc tuples.  But while we have patches for
a version of 2.95.3, we've certainly never looked at that old
a binutils version. 

So if you are committed to using those tool versions, you will
either need to patch binutils appropriately or forward port the
gcc wrapper (which I assume you were using).
