I am trying this now. It looks like it works, at least partially. Whenever the 
test suite finishes I'll report how it ended. I'm using the unmodified 
(-fpic) specs from embryo.

I'd like the GCC test suite to work. There may be unknown bugs, but since the 
entire test suite fails it's impossible to know.
