Oops. That was indeed the problem. With -T it now eats it's script
just fine.

Sadly if I add my
  fpc.ressym    : { *(fpc.ressym) }
  fpc.resstr    : { *(fpc.resstr) }
  fpc.reshash   : { *(fpc.reshash) }
  fpc.resdata   : { *(fpc.resdata) }
  fpc.resspare  : { *(fpc.resspare) }
block to it, I'm back at "Not enough room for program headers
(allocated 5, need 6)". Darn ;)
