Trouble with sections attributes for embedded target


Hi

I'm working on a cross compiler for embedded 68k target and I've tried
to use gcc instead of the commercial tool.
The cross compilation seems to work but I'm lacking something in the
last steps.

I'm linking some objects files that I've been given and some that I
compiled with gcc and here's the output of gcc:

app.ieee:     file format ieee

Sections:
Idx Name          Size      VMA       LMA       File off  Algn
  0 CODE          00001ae4  00000000  00000000  00000000  2**2
                  CONTENTS, ALLOC, LOAD, DATA
  1 zerovars      0000003c  00001ae4  00001ae4  00000000  2**2
                  CONTENTS, ALLOC, LOAD, DATA
  2 .bss          00000214  00001b20  00001b20  00000000  2**2
                  ALLOC, DATA
  3 .debug        00002498  00000000  00000000  00002e2a  2**0
                  CONTENTS, DEBUGGING

Now here's the output of the commercial compiler for the same sources:

../appli.x:     file format ieee

Sections:
Idx Name          Size      VMA       LMA       File off  Algn
  0 CODE          0000182e  00000000  00000000  00000000  2**1
                  CONTENTS, ALLOC, LOAD, CODE
  1 zerovars      0000020c  00000000  00000000  00000000  2**1
                  ALLOC, DATA
  2 .debug        00006a64  00000000  00000000  00002e0c  2**0
                  CONTENTS, DEBUGGING

As you can see, alignement are differents, CODE section has a DATA flag
for gcc whereas it should be code and I can't get rid of the .bss
section.

I've tried to use attribute((section("CODE"))) but the compiler
complains m68k-aout doesn't support this.

Here's my link script:

OUTPUT_FORMAT("a.out-zero-big", "a.out-zero-big",
	      "a.out-zero-big")

OUTPUT_ARCH(m68k)

SECTIONS
{

  . = 0x00;

  CODE :
  {
    defentry.o 
    *("0")
    *(.text)
    *(code)
  }

  zerovars :
  {
    *(.dynamic)
    *(.got)
    *(.plt)
    *(.data)
    *(.linux-dynamic) /* For Linux dynamic linking.  */
  }

  .bss :
  {
   *(.bss)
   *(COMMON)
  }
}


and the commands I use for gcc:

m68k-aout-gcc -mpcrel -mcpu32 -fPIC -c -ansi -pedantic -Iinc entry.c
m68k-aout-ld --verbose -T ld.conf --oformat=ieee -Map app.map -o
app.ieee entry.o defentry.o *.obj *.OBJ

I need to have similar outputs as the last generation step is an
application that changes things in order to meet the embedded OS design.

Has anyone any idea ?
