Thanks for your help. Fortunately it turned out to be much simpler. I
saw someone suggest upgrading to a newer binutils for a similar
problem and it helped. I'm now using the latest binutils RPM and
don't seem to have any problems.
You are right that it has a lot of initialized data. It has one
"defaults.cc" file with a large amount of static defaults. We'll
probably discuss whether it's better to keep this or have a default
config file load in before the user's config file.
Thanks to everyone for their help!
