   The failure occurs in bfs/sunos.c:sunos_scan_ext_relocs() in the
   following assertions:

	 BFD_ASSERT (r_type == RELOC_JMP_TBL
		     || (h->flags & SUNOS_REF_REGULAR) != 0);

   The sunos_link_hash_entry looks like

   (gdb) p *h
   $3 = {root = {root = {root = {next = 0x0, string = 0x6e290 "_pte_exprotect", 
	   hash = 299445140}, type = bfd_link_hash_defined, next = 0x67aa8, u = {undef = {
	     abfd = 0x1cc}, def = {value = 460, section = 0x69c70}, i = {link = 0x1cc, 
	     warning = 0x69c70 ""}, c = {size = 460, p = 0x69c70}}}, written = false, 
       indx = -1}, dynindx = -2, dynstr_index = -1, got_offset = 0, plt_offset = 0, 
     flags = 2 '\002'}

   and r_type has the value '8'

I don't understand this.  The value of SUNOS_REF_REGULAR is 2, so why
is the assertion failing?
