I noticed in my i386 squueze (Debian) installation that ld is linked to ld.bfd. Here in amd64 there is only ld and package binutils does not contain ld.bfd (package is in order, though I also tried reinstall).
In my amd64 lenny installation "ld" is not linked. Neither ld.bfd nor ld.gold exist in /usr/bin.
In contrast, in my i386 squeeze installation, ld is linked to ld.bfd and also ld.gold exist.
francesco@deb32:~$ apt-file search ld.bfd
francesco@tya64:~$ apt-file search ld.bfd
Neither binutils, nor hardening-wrapper contain ld.bfd. in either i386 or amd64.
So, I am puzzled how to make the symlink. Thanks for suggestions
