In some ways not having any hardware to run hppa-linux binaries on is
good, as it gives me some excuse.  :-)

Let me know how this one goes.

	* elf32-hppa.c (hppa_setup_plt_PIC_call): Move function into..
	(elf32_hppa_build_stubs): Don't call it.
	(elf32_hppa_create_dynamic_sections): Don't try to create the .plt
	and .got twice.
	(elf32_hppa_adjust_dynamic_symbol): Handle pic_call here.  Don't
	make symbol dynamic, and don't emit a reloc if pic_call.
	(hppa_handle_PIC_calls): Simplify as we..
	(elf32_hppa_size_dynamic_sections): ..only call hppa_handle_PIC_calls
	when not shared.  Don't create DT_PLTREL etc. entries unless we
	have a .rela.plt section.
	(elf32_hppa_finish_dynamic_symbol): Set up .plt entries with final
	relocated values when it's for a pic_call function we include in
	the link.  Don't create relocs for pic_call either.

	* elf32-hppa.c (final_link_relocate): Look for an import stub in
	the case of statically linked PIC symbols.
