This is not surprising.  When you use --oformat binary, you're using
a generic linker backend rather than the x86 specific ELF linker.  The
generic linker doesn't know how to handle GOT relocs, and a lot of
other cases.

HJ, it would be nice if x86 implemented something like elf32-ppc.c
ppc_elf_unhandled_reloc to give an error at link time for all the
relocs that the generic linker can't handle.
