I assessed what is meant to support -G based on what uses the g_switch_* 
variables.  The iq2000 back end does not use them.  I suppose it would 
have been accepted only because of the specs in svr4.h which that target 
uses - that is, the driver thought this was a linker option (and if -G, 
without argument, is being accepted as a linker option on a given target, 
then the driver should not for other purposes be treating it as an option 
taking an argument).
