-mrelocatable-lib in the current compiler development tree is -mrelocatable,
and it sets a bit in the flags word that says the object can be linked with
either normal objects or objects compiled with -mrelocatable.

-mno-eabi says not to use eabi extensions in compiling the code (which means in
practice, aligning the stack to a 16 byte boundary instead of a 8 byte
boundary, and not using r2 as a secondary small data pointer if -msdata).

This is all caused by the fact that there has been no 2.8 release of gcc......
