These build scripts are big, messy and difficult to debug IMHO. It might be
better to have different directories of scripts for the different platforms,
rather than having massive scripts with hundreds of different branches, an then
trying to work out where these go wrong. (The KISS principle). Also, the
subdirectories seem to rely on the parent directory scripts, and the scripts are
tied to specific versions of autotools. (I would like to a libbinutils library,
and the components separated into separate packages, but I am strange like 

The problem might be to do with genscripts.sh:

checkbashisms genscripts.sh
possible bashism in genscripts.sh line 292 (sourced script with arguments):
(there is a whole series of these).

The first one appeared to be calling ld/emulparams/elf_i386.sh elf_i386.
I am not sure what the passed arguments do here.
