Do you really need them? The ppc32 ABI would have been better without
R_PPC_PLTREL24 and R_PPC_LOCAL24PC, I believe. The linker doesn't
need to be told by the user, perhaps erroneously, that a PLT entry is
required. It could have deduced that requirement from symbol
resolution on a REL24 relocation. Similarly, symbol visibility is a
better way to force local resolution than using @local.
