Re: strange bug in sgml2html or ld ?

That sort of thing can be caused by non-PIC code leaking into shared libs.  
Use `objdump --dynamic-reloc' to inspect the relocation information for the 
libraries in use and look for any invalid relocs (valid ones are R_ARM_COPY, 
R_ARM_GLOB_DAT, R_ARM_JUMP_SLOT and R_ARM_ABS32).  Usually what happens is 
that you get R_ARM_PC24 turning up which is a non-PLT branch.

It's common enough actually that I'm tempted to put a special diagnostic in 
ld.so to catch R_ARM_PC24 and print a more enlightening message.
