It's not possible to fix it to do what we want. GCC creates
relocations against imported data objects that aren't representable in
a Win32 import table.
The only hope is to modify gcc to not allow offsets in direct
addressing, but that would (1) be a big performance penalty, and (2)
probably not be accepted by the gcc folks.
