There's a thread about this in the archives. In short, it's a binutils
problem, and a newer version of binutils fixes it. I had to upgrade
past 2.10. I used binutils-000828. It's a development version (weekly
snapshot, i think) so it's not at the standard download site, and
i don't have the URL anymore but you shouldn't have too much trouble
finding it.
