 This flag really means that symbol names will be with the leading
underscore, so instead of '_end' the '__end' will be searched...

 So your workaround could be to not build any 'und' libraries,
because it is unclear for what purpose they will be needed --
for compatability with some commercial tools, for some old
prebuilt libs, of why... Then just edit away this flag and the
related library-name from the MULTILIB-definitions in the

 Or you could try to use the '-msim' option during the build,
I didn't find a linker script for this target, so it uses the
default linker script built-in into 'powerpc-eabi-ld', and to
be seen with the '-verbose' option. This has :

-------------------- clip -------------------------
  .endjunk BLOCK(__section_alignment__) :
    /* end is deprecated, don't use it */
     end = .;			<------
     _end = .;			<------
     __end__ = .;		<------
  .rsrc BLOCK(__section_alignment__) :
-------------------- clip -------------------------

 Or you could edit your 'yellowknife.ld' to have these extra
'end' and '__end' lines...
