I understand.

Similar thing happens while I try to make Kaffe on m68k-sunos4.1.1.
In this case, if I use GNU's ld, I got error (mmap bss something)
when I invoke Kaffe. But when I use sun's ld everything ok. That's
why I left this problem.

The only drawback is that I can not use cross compiling environment

Anyway, we have source files for ld.so in BSD-4.4-lite tree and
when I have time I'd like to check the mystery.
