[Gcl-devel] relocation overflow

Greetings!  On ppc, GCL loads binary object modules at specific
address in its lisp core, relocating them via a call to
bfd_get_relocated_section_contents.  This works in general, but in
certain cases of many such loadings and a large base executable, the
routine reports that function symbols in the module overflow on
attempted relocation.  I thought this was a TOC issue, and could be
addressed via -mminimal-toc, but no dice.  All tests thus far with gcc
2.95, but I'm inclined to think that 3.2 will be the same.  

Does this problem ring a bell (and hopefully a solution) with anyone?

Take care,
