Hi Andi,

This is an ld64 bug. This one might be fixed in next Xcode release  
depending on Apple engineering team.

For the mean time I may commit some assembler fix. An other solution  
would be to use the Mac OS X 10.4u SDK, with the old ld_classic. But I  
can't get that solution to work properly.
