No bss[45] sections ins libtarget.a or vectors.o.

However, extras.o does contain bss[45] sections:

$ i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.95.1/specs
gcc version 2.95.1 19990816 (release)

I just build the copiler last week -- I initially tried to use the
version that came with RH6.0: gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux
(egcs-1.1.2 release).  But, there were some options used by the ecos
makefiles that it didn't support.

If this us just something that is due to my using a newer version of
gcc than was used when the eCOS distribution was set up, then I'll add
bss[45] sections to the .ld file and assume it's not a problem.
