I think so far the most likely origin of the R_PPC_REL24 relocations
seems libgcc.a. Matthias, do you concur? If so, any ideas what the
iceweasel build might be doing wrong? Or otherwise, any ideas for
isolating where they're coming from?

Not sure that matters at all. A R_PPC_REL24 relocation in a shared
object is a bug.
P.S. /usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0/libxul.so seems contaminated as well.
