Anyone know why I would get the below error while compiling a powerpc target on
an alpha?  Am I missing a needed option?

/build/prep/tools/usr/bin/ld  -Bshareable -Bsymbolic -e .rtld_start --script
/build/src/libexec/ld.elf_so/arch/powerpc/ -o ld.elf_so
rtld_start.o ppc_reloc.o rtld.o reloc.o symbol.o malloc.o xmalloc.o xprintf.o
