From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; I; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

Description of problem:
Trying to port an executable with several hunder modules from Solaris to Linux.
The make file contains several sublinks. All sublinks make, but when trying to
combine them with /usr/bin/ld I get the following error:
/usr/bin/ld: BFD 20020207 internal error, aborting at elf32-i386.c
line 1887 in elf_i386_relocate_section

It then says:
/usr/bin/ld: Please report this bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make

Actual Results:  The actual error message is embedded within the description

Expected Results:  A valid executable should have been generated for linux on a

Additional info:

I tried converting the make file to not use sublinks, but I still end up with a
line in
the make file that does gcc -o with three objects that are kept separate. The
500-600 modules are all in a single group instead of several sublinks.
