Description of problem:  Static version of libbfd is broken (libbfd.so is good

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Part of

How reproducible:
Write a test program to call bfd_fdopenr() on a FILE (exe, lib, etc).  

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Run program
Actual results:
Examine the bfd pointer returned from this call.  Among many other things, the
bfd->name value is null, bfd->next is null, flags are null. 

Expected results:
bfd->name should point to the first section of the FILE as reported by objdump
-h FILE.
bfd->sections should not be null.
bfd->flags should not be zero

Additional info:
-OR- Statically link objdump w/ libbfd.a; it should break.
