No, it is this:

powerpc-linux-ld: TOC section size exceeds 64k

It is powerpc specific and the only way we can think of fixing it
involves stopping building the built-in.o files and linking the entire
kernel in one go at the end.  We just haven't had time (or the energy) to
try to fix it properly while it only affects the final link of the
allyesconfig kernel.
