LD 2.16 with option --gc-sections causes "unresolvable relocation "

Tue Nov 21 12:42:00 GMT 2006


When experimenting with --gc-sections I get the following error:

.... main.o(.text+0x253): unresolvable relocation against symbol
.... final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output.

Can someone say, off the bat, what could be wrong here?  If people need more
information I can post
more details including the output from the --verbose option.

Many thanks,
