Yes, it requires a custom linker script. The problem arose building
OSv for aarch64:

https://github.com/cloudius-systems/osv

You could say the linker script is incorrect not to lay out the
dynamic reloc sections explicitly but it seems counter intuitive
behaviour to set RELASZ to zero when it clearly isn't.

A number of ports base the size on the size of the output sections:

lm32
m32r
nds32
sh-32
xtensa
s390-64
x86_64

But the rest use the size of input sections.
