That's in fact what I was trying to use.

I'll have to look more carefully at the ia64.  I think I see what
ia64_expand_call is doing to handle the function descriptor vs FDE

      dest = force_reg (DImode, gen_rtx_MEM (DImode, addr));
      emit_move_insn (pic_offset_table_rtx,
		      gen_rtx_MEM (DImode, plus_constant (addr, 8)));

So, it explicitly loads the pic_offset_table_rtx.  I think we can do
the same.  I beginning to think indirect calls from one shared library
to another may never have worked on the PA.
