Ok, the only thing that seems to have changed in the last week was 'ld' 
with the -rpath fix.

Did you build with objdirs? Can you go back to the obj tree and verify that 
only libamu_pic and, libbfd_pic and exist?

Clearly making _pic the load target is stupid since that leaves the 
executables as object files rather than programs. I'm guessing egcs is 
involved again somehow. Sigh.
