Sorry for the long silence.  It looks like acl2, axiom, and maxima
all ran into this problem a little more than 5 years ago.

To move this forward:

 - does it still happen today with binutils from sid or experimental?
 - if so, could you try

	git clone git://sources.redhat.com/git/binutils.git
	cd binutils
	./configure --prefix=$HOME/opt/binutils; # or whereever
	make install


	cp -o big-binary.stripped big-binary

   to see if the latest upstream version has the same problem?
 - if so, could you file a report at http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/
   and send us the bug number?

Alternatively, I'd be happy to look into this given access to a
powerpc machine to test on.  Here's an ssh key just generated for that
