As projects are growing in code size more and more are being affected  
by this bug we are also requiring a lot of use of --no-relax in the  
Debian Alpha port.  That gcc is now being affected by it is a real  

I am prepared to assist in testing including running debugging  
versions of binutils under gdb to see if we can better isolate the  
problem and find a solution,  but I would need guidance since I know  
very little of the binutils code.
