RE: Old binutils bug? R_386_NONE

In fact if you search on google you will see many people with various
different applications getting this error at run time on RedHat 7.2.

If the linker is putting NULL reloc's into the binary and the loader was
not accepting them then obviouslly people would have trouble.

Here is one example of another person with same issue:

I think that this is probably a dynamic loader error rather a binutils
bug.  The NULL reloc should probably just be ignored (since it has
already been processed and turned into a NULL value), but the loader
with your 7.2 system is not doing this.
