--- Comment #1 from Mark Wielaard <mark at klomp dot org> ---
eu-elflint probably doesn't handle compressed ELF sections. And it would be
some work to make it handle them because it does check various references
between sections and seems to assume any of those are against normal
(uncompressed) sections.

The question is how did a compressed ELF section end up in the elfstrmerge.o
file in the first place? Especially since it apparently isn't in the resulting
EXE file. Seems somehow the ET_REL file got created with a compressed ELF
section, but then the linker fixed things up again?
