I upgraded from Slakware 3.0, kernel 1.3.20 to Slackware 3.2, kernel 2.0.29. I installed over the existing installation. When compiling the kernel, I get the following error. How can I fix it?

Did you upgrade all the things as specified by the CHANGES file in the kernel documentation directory?  Since objdump is having trouble, I suspect that your binutils too old.  You should upgrade it, and also whatever else specified in the CHANGES file.
