The only difference between 2.6.5-1 and 2.6.5-2 is that the former
uses the system bfd library, and the latter compiles a local copy from
the gcl source (pre 2.15).  gcl uses
bfd_get_relocated_section_contents to relocate compiled lisp objects
into its running image, and bfd hash functions to get symbol addresses
from its saved image.  I can't recall the precise location of the
original failure, but one of these is implicated.  Should be
straightforward to find with gdb and a local -g compiled copy of
binutils-2.15, but I'm running short of time right now.

Take care,
