binutils 2.22 available for OpenVMS IA64 and Alpha

Dear all,


I updated my binutils port from 2.21.51 to 2.22. On IA64, it adds the readelf utilitiy. I also corrected the bfd/dwarf2.c source which was not handling DWARF3 DW_LNE_lo_user and DW_LNE_hi_user. This caused a dwarf error reported by addr2line when the following C code was compiled by the HP C compiler:

$ type memleak.c
#include <stdlib.h>
int main(int argc,char **argv){

     void *p;
     return 1;
