           Summary: README file doesn't make sense
           Product: binutils
           Version: 2.21
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: admin
        AssignedTo: address@hidden
        ReportedBy: address@hidden

The very first lines of 'binutils-2.21/README' file are:

      1                    README for GNU development tools
      3 This directory contains various GNU compilers, assemblers, linkers,
      4 debuggers, etc., plus their support routines, definitions, and
      6 If you are receiving this as part of a GDB release, see the file
      7 If with a binutils release, see binutils/README;  if with a libg++
      8 see libg++/README, etc.  That'll give you info about this
      9 package -- supported targets, how to use it, how to report bugs, etc.

- to me it looks senseless and useless.

It looks like a very ancient file from the times (if there were such times)
when GNU tools were indeed distributed in one tarball/directory.

WRT the present day 'binutils' the file is senseless, i.e. it hardly contains
any practically useful information.
