For {i?86,ppc}-darwin* (i.e. m32 hosts) the PIC libiberty library is being incorrectly built.

The default BOOT_CFLAGS are: -O2 -g -mdynamic-no-pic
the libiberty pic build appends: -fno-common (and not even -fPIC) [NB -fPIC _won't_ override -mdynamic-no-pic, so that's not a simple way out]

This means that the PIC library is being built with non-pic relocs.

I have a local hack to allow build to proceed on m32-host-darwin (which I can send to you if you would like it) - however, it's not really a suitable patch for trunk... and I've not had time recently to try and fix this.

If you would like to raise a PR for this, I can append the analysis there.

cheers
Iain
