The configure script should warn if gputils is too old.
When I tried to run the pic16 regression tests, they failed due to crt0 missing, which turned out to be due to pic16 libraries failing to build due to this error:libio18f23k22_a-dummy.asm:8:Error  Unknown processor.
libio18f23k22_a-dummy.asm:17:Error  Processor type is undefined.
which in turn was due to the latest gputils version in Debian being too old.
IMO there should be at least a warning about the gputils version at configure time when not using --disable-pci16-port. Even better would be if the library just would build the crt0 for all processors supported so I could run the pic16 regression tests without upgrading gputils.
