 Yes. It seems, something wrong with MIPS ECOFF support
by BFD/objcopy .

 I've meet this problem trying to build MIPS ECOFF for the old
VxWorks 5.0.4

 The ECOFF relocs geberated by `objcopy` looks strange.

 AFIK, the MIPS ECOFF is not plain COFF and very $gp
dependent (info as). The `elf2coff` utility is dumb and seems
just ignores this.
