Default Distro?

Installing binutils depends on your distro... so which one is your distro(debian 3, redhat 8..9, mandrake, suse...............)?

Default Redhat 8 development RPMs

You must install all the RPM files needed for development. In general, you choose to install them when you first install the OS. But you can go through the package manager(check the menus): install all the development(devel) RPM files from the redhat package manager. In there you'll find the binutils, because binutils are fundamentals if you want to do development. The drawback is a system able to do development takes a lot more room than a "just run" system.
I would recommend you to upgrade to the lastest redhat, namely the 9.x because for what I understand redhat 8 is a kind of beta version for redhat 9.
