In trying to compile a utility here, I end up with a linker error:

$ gcc -w -o pvmtalk pvmtalk.o dom_x.o usleep.o 
-L/home/neuro/contrib/pvm3.3.11/lib/LINUX -lpvm3 -lgpvm3 
-L/usr/X11R6/lib ../xvertext.5.0/libXrot.a -lX11 -lm
/home/neuro/contrib/pvm3.3.11/lib/LINUX/libpvm3.a(lpvm.o): In function 
lpvm.o(.text+0x29cf): the use of `tmpnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'
/usr/bin/ld: can not size stub section: Bad value
/usr/bin/ld: BFD 20020307 Debian/GNU Linux internal error, 
aborting at ../../bfd/elf32-hppa.c line 4038 in elf32_hppa_relocate_section

/usr/bin/ld: Please report this bug.

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

We have gcc 3.0.4. The sources compile with just some warnings.

Can someone offer any suggestion as to what this means and how we can 
solve it?
