I don't know about gas, but this sure looks like what I was getting
from the 'floppy' version of the bootblocks when I was trying to build
them last week.  I ended up deleting a HOOP of *.o, and *.a files.
Make clean just didn't hack it.  I had to destroy the contents of the
./obj directory in about four places before it would work.  I also had
to make sure that I was copying the .h files from sys/sys into the
/usr/include directory to keep everything lined up right.
