Note that on my m68k-next-nextstep3 system exactly the same code is
generated, and the native compiler on my system _is_ gas.
I personally got a useful reply by John Vickers (don't know why he
didn't sent it to the list):

I don't know what to think of this; either:
1. The S[t]un assembler recognises the jbsr aap,a1 construct as
special and generate the right stuff for PIC - then we can't
do nothing here, although Kate could try to use the original
2. jbsr aap,a1 is simply jbsr aap(a1) in Motorola/MIT syntax, and
then egcs can be repaired to generate the correct assembler.
