I believe that only dynamic local syms are being added.  reloc_entries
are added to list by count_dyn_reloc.  This is only called when need_entry
has NEED_DYNREL, and sec->flags & SEC_ALLOC.  However, this is the path
by which the local dyn symbols are being added.  This must be something
wrong with the removal process for local dyn symbols.

I hacked elflink.h to skip discarded sections.  However, now ld
seg faults linking apps:

/xxx/gnu/gcc-3.2/objdir/gcc/libgcc.a(__main.o): In function `__do_global_dtors':
/xxx/gnu/gcc-3.2/objdir/gcc/../../gcc/gcc/libgcc2.c:1899: undefined reference to `__EH_FRAME_BEGIN__'

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Too many bugs.
