It's worse than that: gplib is ar. I have just looked inside it and
added some diagnostic stuff, but based on what I've found my guess is
that the compiler and/or gputils assembler is emitting an invalid
object file that causes gplib to to choke.

I also have a patch coming up to make the sdcc3 lib build not
blatantly ignore build errors.
