Apparently that last bit, "relocation truncated to fit:" is the key.
The compiler [as I understand it], can't handle it on this platform.
One also cannot add "makeoptions CFLAGS="-mlong-calls" to the kernel
conf and rebuild, as the -mlong-calls is not an option for the compiler
on the macppc platform.

Anybody had any luck getting around this for any packages?
