I found that there is some conditionally-compiled assembly in a header
file.  I can avoid the problem if I simply disable it when !PIC &&
ARCH_X86_64.  That doesn't seem to be the best solution, since a nearby
test for ARCH_X86_64 seems to suggest the assembly is supposed to work
for it too.

    #define LOW          "0"
    #define RANGE        "4"
    #ifdef ARCH_X86_64
    #define BYTESTART   "16"
    #define BYTE        "24"
    #define BYTEEND     "32"
    #define BYTESTART   "12"
    #define BYTE        "16"
    #define BYTEEND     "20"
    #if defined(ARCH_X86) && !(defined(PIC) && defined(__GNUC__))
