Assuming this is on i386, it is trying to use the pretty new GOT32X
relocation. Since there is a hack in place to force newer binutils's
GAS, the assembler creates it, but the (system) linker doesn't support.

I tried various ways to force it to use a different linker, but (mainly) failed. Putting links in .gcc/bin or .tools/bin to /usr/pkg/gnu/bin/ld doesn't help as it still uses /usr/bin/ld

I think the problem is that gcc is built with --with-ld=/usr/bin/ld and so PATH is ignored. The solution is probably one of the following:

1) Create a devel/binutils/ in a similar vein to devel/binutils/ that overrides gcc specs to force a different ld that can be used.

2) If on NetBSD < 6 (and other OSes too, I suspect), enforce the link between binutils and pkgsrc gcc so that the linker from binutils is always used.
