I have been running Ubuntu 9.04 (rc 2 I think) since about a month
ago. It comes with binutils 2.19.1-0ubuntu3.  I have not had any
problems compiling FPC, Lazarus or any of our company applications.

The only issue I found is in XLib which doesn't draw connecting lines
correctly. So applications running in WINE or fpGUI has a missing
pixels in the bottom left corner of buttons, menus, etc... I've
already reported this as a bug.
