g77 might not build with the native (non-GNU) tools
due to a linker bug in coping with the
-bbigtoc option which
leads to a

now-unsupported version. This bug is said to be fixed by `update PTF
U455193 for APAR IX75823'.
might solve this problem, e.g. by adding
BOOT_CFLAGS='-mminimal-toc -O2 -g'to the
make bootstrapcommand line.
