Accessing normal static variables should be  no  problem.  It's  just
initialized  data  pointers  which  need  manual relocation. I try to
avoid this data type whenever possible, or we need to relocate it. If
you find unrelocated initialized pointers please let me know.

But accessing the variables itself should work just fine  -  if  they
are pointers, they will just contain unrelocated addresses.
