That is a bug.  Ideally, Axiom (build-improvements, that is) should
NOT decide itself on the configure options.  However, GCL should be
able to detect that BFD is missing (or present) and decide accordingly.
Now, I rememebr Humberto asked recently what --enable-custreloc was
about.  It was put there a very long time ago.  But since then GCL's
configure's gotten smarter and needs not be told about that.  Those
are bugs that should be corrected.
