Okay, I messed up again. I described it wrong
before. I should've said, if I do

/usr/src/contrib/binutils/./configure -args

It works okay. I found that with locate.
Could I have messed up scripts in /usr/ports
or somewhere else when I rebuilt everything?
I never had to add any path to ./configure
before. After I wrote this message, I thought
about paths & did some looking with locate.
That's what seems to be my problem. Wrong
path in env, something missing, etc.
