What is your host OS? Are you running go32/DOS on WinNT? This would
explain 1) above. 
Besides this, go32 as host OS is not supported by RTEMS. 

However, your question actually refers to binutils and is
independent from RTEMS :-

I don't know if binutils can be build under go32. There may be other
mailing lists which can help you more.

If you want to work with RTEMS on WinNT, you might consider using
Cygwin instead of go32.
