The piece of assembly in question is:
mflr r31
addis r31,r31,ha16(L149$pb-LSJR827)
addi r31,r31,lo16(L149$pb-LSJR827)
Actually this looks like it is connected to Geoff's recent patch
which introduced the LSJR label.  Geoff, is
current_function_uses_pic_offset_table not getting set anywhere?
That would account for his symptom.

It is supposed to be set by machopic_function_base_name, which is called to generate the label. Looking at the code, my suspicion is that the original load_macho_picbase pattern is getting deleted by flow because it appears dead, but that also deletes the label that the macho_correct_pic needs.

If so, the solution is to use a real CODE_LABEL instead of having the label inside load_macho_picbase, but this will be a complex change.

(This is probably unrelated to your earlier bug.)
Well, it's certainly related, in the sense that if I hadn't fixed that bug this code would now fail at runtime instead of compile-time…
