3.0.4 is shipped with Binutils of version 2.22, however for the big obj 
support at least binutils 2.25 is required. The upcoming 3.2.0 release 
will contain 2.28. To update them yourselves you can retrieve them from 
the fpcbuild repository (important ones are as.exe and ld.exe):
- for Win64: 
- for Win32:
