Any chance that your compiler is not working correctly?

Works fine for me (and always did):

-> ppc_8xx-gcc -g  -Os  -mrelocatable -ffixed-r14 -meabi -mrelocatable -ffixed-r14 -meabi -D__KERNEL__ -DTEXT_BASE=0x40000000 -I/home/wd/u-boot/include -fno-builtin -pipe -DCONFIG_PPC -D__powerpc__ -DCONFIG_8xx -ffixed-r2 -ffixed-r29 -mstring -mcpu=860 -msoft-float -DCONFIG_PPC -D__powerpc__ -DCONFIG_8xx -ffixed-r2 -ffixed-r29 -mstring -mcpu=860 -msoft-float -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -c -o post.o post.c
-> ppc_8xx-gcc -dumpversion

[I'm using our ELDK.]
