Mea culpa!  I had not used the -m switch, but instead had tried
the -F and other format switches.  It seems impolite of ld to
segfault under those conditions.

Anyway, with -m i386linux I can indeed produce a working 1.2.13 kernel
with the 2.7.0/new tools set.  Thank you Craig!

Yes, the amateur radio package is the reason for keeping 1.2.x around.
I've been using my system more recently and just haven't been up to
doing too much version chasing.  The amateur radio networking in the
1.3.x kernel is considerably more flexible than the older 1.1.x/1.2.x
stuff, but still in a state where there are separate DIFFS for each
1.3.x release (9 diff files were released against the 1.3.20 release
for example).

Since I was having trouble compiling 1.2.x though, I did download
1.3.23, so I'll give it a go as well.

I do have a mixed ELF/a.out system now... with the disadvantage of
having both sets of libraries around (and often in memory judging
by the increased memory usage. :-(
