I believe gcc on NetBSD uses -fpcc-struct-return by default so that
shouldn't be an issue (and I'm not sure if it is pertinent for amd64
anyway), and I have never found any especial problem linking programs
built with pcc against libs built with gcc
If you can show a process that fails I can try to reproduce it.. there
have been various issues in the past that have all been fixed for i386 but
it may be that something is not quite right in the PIC code generation for
amd64. Alas I don't have one..
