Well, GNU userspace uses -mabicalls too, but the -mno-shared form is
now the default for executables. I suppose that's the difference.
Just to confirm: it sounds from what you're saying that -msym32
(and 32-bit load addresses) are not valid as well as not useful
for n64 NetBSD. 5GB is the minimum (or only) acceptable start
address. Is that right?
