I just inherited some old code that was previously being built on
Cygwin with a very old sde-gcc (2.96).  When I attempt to build it on
a Linux machine using a more recent cross compiler and toolchain, I
get the following errors:

mipsel-linux-uclibc-objcopy --output-target=binary prog prog.bin
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.text' to huge (ie negative) file
offset 0x86bfff4c.
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.rodata' to huge (ie negative) file
offset 0x86c3e97c.
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.data.rel.ro' to huge (ie negative)
file offset 0x86c479ec.
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.data' to huge (ie negative) file
offset 0x86c4896c.
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.got' to huge (ie negative) file offset
0x86c4d35c.
BFD: Warning: Writing section `.sdata' to huge (ie negative) file
offset 0x86c4d84c.
mipsel-linux-uclibc-objcopy: prog.bin: File truncated

Is there a simple solution to this?  My Google skills must be waning
as I was unable to find anything helpful. :(
