Odds are they've broken ld -R again; it seems to break often and 
inconsistently among architectures.  I don't know why; apparently they 
need a test for it in their test suite.  Since it's an internal error in 
ld, it's pretty much impossible for anyone here to debug it, and you 
should be checking with the binutils people.
