That doesn't doesn't seem to be a recognized version.
From the `emerge binutils` that failed, it gives this version:
Emerging (1 of 1) sys-devel/binutils-126.96.36.199.6
I see the following related to binutils in $EPREFIX/usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils
$ ls usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils
binutils-2.18-r04.1.ebuild binutils-188.8.131.52.6.ebuild Manifest
binutils-2.19.1-r01.1.ebuild ChangeLog metadata.xml
(question: what determines which versions I have at my disposal?)
I tried the older one binutils-2.20.1-r1 using the ~ syntax you showed me :-)
$ emerge --oneshot --nodeps ~binutils-2.20.1-r1
And that one worked.
