Selective linking wasn't implemented on elf64-alpha. The compiler seems to be
doing the right thing, but BFD doesn't provide the necessary support. As a
result, the tests are failing and should probably be turned off for that
particular platform until the implementation is carried out.

Comment 5 Alexandre Petit-Bianco 2002-03-27 16:00:48 EST
One more thing. I've been told by one of the binutils maintainer that these 
test cases were now specifically disabled on elf64-alpha.

Comment 6 George France 2002-04-17 17:15:23 EDT
I do not believe that the test should be disabled for alpha.  Maybe marked XFAIL
would be more appropriate????
