In follow up, I updated and rebuilt the latest binutils
and tried the patch associated with this bug report:
to see if my problem was due to this bug. It does not appear to be: the
link problem I've described remains true.
I'm thinking Tony Whyman's suggestion (building inside a chroot on a
64/32 bit host platform) is probably the best way forward for me now but
there does look like there's a problem with FPC (i.e. handling of -XR
apropos the ld) and GNU ld (i.e. the failure to prepend sysroot for
symlink dereferenced library files). If you concur on the latter point,
perhaps it might be worth reporting upstream to GNU?
