Hmm, that probably means it's something I broke, most likely when cleaning
up the code that handles arg relocs.  :-(  I'll have a look today, since
it seems likely I'm to blame.

The strings test is relatively new, and the fix I checked in wasn't done
because I'd run the testsuite for SOM - It was more a case of noticing the
error by looking at the source.  It's unfortunate that hppa SOM support
in binutils needs HP-UX to compile...  Anyway, I now have access to a
HP-UX box, but I need to compile a few gnu packages, dejagnu at least,
before I can use it to painlessly run the testsuite.
