In the latest binutils-snapshot (at least):

$ ld -v
GNU ld (GNU Binutils)

this problem was fixed by:

commit 41be969f4957115ed7b1fe8b890bfaee99d7a7a2
Author: Wolfgang Denk <wd at denx.de>
Date:   Thu Dec 6 10:21:19 2007 +0100
     Release v1.3.1
compiled a  $ make TQM8540_config target with gcc-4.2.2 within
an native mpc8540 environment.

I cannot run-test now, but I will close binutils bug 5205 now:

Thanks for the detailed report to Brian and for the fix to Nathan. :-)
