I don't think -G is the problem here. The problem is that the GOT
needs to be bigger than a 16 bit value. The only way to do this is to
recompile everything that is going to be linked in statically
(libc_noshared.a and libgcc.a included) with -Wa,-xgot This problem
currently affects openh323 and mozilla, among other things.
