It's a bug in glibc that it prints garbage after the number, it should
print just 0x00.  This is R_68K_NONE, which should not happen.  In this
case the error is detected in
sysdeps/m68k/dl-machine.h:elf_machine_lazy_rel, where only R_68K_JMP_SLOT
relocations are expected.  This function is called for reloc entries
covered by DT_JMPREL, ie. .rela.plt.

Note that this has nothing to do with any particular symbol, it is just an
incident that optind was the last symbol to be searched for.  The error
happens when all symbols for non-lazy relocations are resolved and the
lazy relocations are executed.
