Ulrich Drepper says that relative relocations must *always* be first, it doesn't require a complete sort. The dynamic loader is a special case, but there are some requirements. > Have you tried the ld "-z combreloc" option to see if that works? It > combines reloc sections and sorts them.

That sounds like a good place to start if the latter fails.
