ld or gcc failing?


I have the following problem:

I compiled many C modules, and I'm using `ld' to build a '.a' library file
and it fails with the following error:
rm -f Dobj3.a
ld -r -o Dobj3.a do243d.o re247d.o in245d.o bo251d.o ch249d.o po253d.o

ld: Dobj3.a: reloc overflow: 0x1808d > 0xffff
Dobj3.a: final close failed: File truncated
make: *** [Dobj3.a] Error 1

Then I tried to concatenate all my small C modules into one `BIG.c' file and
then compile it, it fails with:
bash-2.02$ make
gcc -D_WIN32_IE=0x0400 -mno-cygwin  -DWORKBENCH -c BIG.c
bin/as.exe: BIG.o: reloc overflow: 0x1808d > 0xffff
BIG.o: File truncated
C:\TEMP/ccAIcaaa.s: Assembler messages:
C:\TEMP/ccAIcaaa.s:142442: FATAL: Can't close BIG.o
: File truncated
make: *** [BIG.o] Error 1

Here is the version I'm using:
bash-2.02$ gcc -v
Reading specs from
gcc version 2.95 19990728 (release)
bash-2.02$ ld -v
GNU ld version 2.9.4 (with BFD 2.9.4)

Do you have an idea of what could be wrong?
Thanks in advance
