Seeking from the end of the file in the bfd library

I'm working on adding support to gdb for debugging executables produced by
the Oxford Oberon compiler. The executable format generated by this
compiler has the header at the end of the file. But in the version of the
bfd library included with gdb 4.18, seeking from the end of the file isn't
supported. Is this restriction relaxed in later versions or are there any
workarounds? I'm not interested in supporting this executable format
embedded in archives.
