ok, for a while I was dealing with this by simply hacking up initfini.s by
hand, but that wasn't necessary last time I built.  I think this is
related to the fact that somebody had taken out .proc/.procend from the
assembler entirely (well, ignored them  on ELF targets).  I think this was
a bad idea (if I remember tc-hppa.c from gas, it depends on these to build
some of the global symbol information?  It did something even on an elf

We might need our own magic sed script for parisc.

Lemme think about this properly, I just woke up and am expected at work.
