Somewhere on my backup tapes must be the source for a gcc-1.39 based linker
that created executables with a relocation table attached. This is just
another way of handling this. Drawback is that you can't page but have
to revert to swapping. I used this linker with MiNT on my atari 1040ST. This
one had only an 8MhZ 68000 (yes, MiNT was multitasking ;-)
