The gcc and binutils sources are stored in two different repositories,
of two different types, so you can't check them both out in one
You can combine your checked out trees into a single tree, though, by
copying, moving, or symlinking. Choose the libiberty and include in
the binutils checkout - the common files should be the same, but there
are extra files in binutils' include.
However, if you ever plan on contributing changes or updating your
sources, it would be better to keep them separate.
