So how would a consumer of the ELF binary recognize the 16bit-ness?
I.e. shouldn't there first be an extension to the i386 ELF ABI to mark
either the whole object or (preferred) individual sections as 16bit?
There probably should. I'll take a look at adding this. Do you know if
other architectures have similar extensions that I could look at to see
how they do it?
+ targ_selvecs="i386_msdos_vec i386_aout_vec"
Why force aout in for everyone?
It seems to be a prerequisite for i386_msdos_vec - without it, I get
"undefined reference to `aout_32_mkobject'" in i386msdos.o.
