odd build failure in ld

I am building on x86-64 Fedora 18.  I use --enable-targets=all.

Whenever ld/default-manifest.o needs to be rebuilt, I get:

    barimba. rm default-manifest.o
    barimba. make default-manifest.o
    ../binutils/windres -o default-manifest.o ../../binutils-gdb/ld/emultempl/default-manifest.rc
    ../binutils/windres: can't get BFD_RELOC_RVA relocation type: No error
    make: *** [default-manifest.o] Error 1

However, after this failure, the build "works" again because the .o file
exists after this odd failure:

    barimba. ll default-manifest.o
    -rw-r--r--. 1 tromey tromey 0 Mar  3 12:29 default-manifest.o
