egcs1.1a and egcs-1.1.1 miscompile xemacs-21 on alpha-linux.

Specifically, I've tried egcs-1.1a and egcs-1.1.1, most recently on
xemacs-21.0.61 on alpha-linux (ev56).

binutils is:
GNU ld 2.9.1

which should be from:
binutils-2.9.1.0.17

Here's what happens:
temacs can only be run in -batch mode.

This suggests that unexelf is broken, and that it isn't initializing
data correctly.

egcs-1.0.3a works fine (gcc version egcs-2.90.27 from RH5.1).

I haven't had time to debug it (and probably never will).
