This is an issue with binutils from testing. As quick fix you could symlink it for now, as it's actually a bug in applications that link dynamically to libbfd. libbfd is not API stable so programs should link to the static version of this lib. The next upload of amule will link to the static library, which means we won't get these upgrade bugs anymore for binutils.

I see. Thanks for explaination.

aMule didn't work but with a full update of the system it worked again.
But don't know if it didn't start due to the same problem.

This resolved the problem for me:
ln /usr/lib/libbfd-2.17.50.0.17.so /usr/lib/libbfd-2.17.so

Alex, it's a workaround and not exactly a fix of this bug.

i686 rebuild against newest binutils on the way

-4 is up - i686 should be fine now
