Subject: objcopy won't convert T64U .o files to ELF

I tried to convert .o files created with DEC's assembler to ELF:
  objcopy -I ecoff-littlealpha -O elf64-alpha in.o out.o

It fails though:
  BFD: bfd assertion fail /usr/src/gnu/lib/libbfd/../../dist/bfd/elf.c:3593

This message repeats very often (probably as many messages as symbols in
the .o), then
  BFD: out.o: unsupported relocation type BRADDR
  objcopy: out.o: Bad value
follow, and out.o isn't a valid ELF object, the linker says
"File format not recognized".

Any ideas for fixes or workarounds?
