What makes you think that it is an egcs bug? I have no problems on 601
(7200/75) with any of the modules you listed. Are you sure you have the
latest modutils (2.1.121 or later) installed?

Is "Unhandled relocation of type 26" the behaviour for standard compilation
or for -fpic? You can't compile a kernel/modules with -fpic and expect
modutils still to work, modutils only handles the minimum necessary
relocation types.
