Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.

I bootstrapped gcc 4.1 today on a dual G5 running Mac OS 10.3.9 using 
gcc 3.3.  It was successful after I installed the latest cctools.  
However, when trying to build our projects with gcc 4.1 I get a whole 
slew of "Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed." errors like so:

/var/tmp//cc588Xyz.s:4717:Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.
/var/tmp//cc588Xyz.s:4721:Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.
/var/tmp//cc588Xyz.s:4723:Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.
/var/tmp//cc588Xyz.s:4728:Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.
/var/tmp//cc588Xyz.s:4730:Complex expression. Absolute segment assumed.

There's probably 100 or so for each file I'm compiling.  What causes 
this?  This is how I configured gcc 4.1:

/afs/scl/u/samm/Desktop/gcc-4.1.0/configure 
--target=powerpc-apple-darwin7.9.0 --enable-languages=c,c++ 
--program-suffix=-4.1

Thanks,
Sam
