The most likely case is that the linker is being performed with a
linker script specified on the command line, rather than using the
default, builtin script.  What *exactly* is the command line that is
being used to invoke the linker ?

It would also really help if you were able to produce a small,
self-contained test case that demonstrates the problem.
