The change wasn't too difficult, I just replicated what relocate.c
does with the new ebl_reloc_simple_types. Just do the 4 or 8 byte relocs
directly. This makes everything build and seems to work fine. Except that
the test that compares the eu-readelf -w output
before/after the --reloc-debug-sections is similar. But it looks like the
readelf on the branch doesn't do relocations for the .debug_frame printing
for ET_REL files (it does in trunk).

Should I push to your branch or create a mjw/relocate one for my changes?

Then I'll look at why readelf fails to do the relocations. Unless you
already know why?
