powerpc-eabi assembler problems

I'm using a powerpc-eabi compiler which I built from
gcc-2.92.2 and binutils-2.9.1.  The assembler chokes on
instructions like this one:

li r5, 0xfffe

initads.s:194: Error: operand out of range (65534 not between -32768 and 32767)                       


It complains that the operand is out of range, when in fact,
if should just translate the 0xfffe t0 -2.   Does anyone know if
this is an assembler bug, or is it a feature?

Thanks,

Pete
