Well I fixed that problem. Made a symlink to where it was looking and it seemed to work:

# cd /usr/avr/lib/


# ln -s /usr/lib/binutils/avr/2.18/ldscripts .

(note the '.' at the end) This solved the previous error, but now I'm getting this:

Is there a better work around, or does everything need to be lowercase (haven't tried it yet)? I saw that someone had this error earlier this month, any solution found that works?
