Not a preprocessor bug; building dynlink.i by hand, I see that this line
	if (DL_FDPIC) ((stage3_func)&ldso.funcdescs[dls3_def.sym-ldso.syms])(sp);
	if (0) ((stage3_func)&ldso.funcdescs[dls3_def.sym-ldso.syms])(sp);

Which is what it should be.
So it's hitting a problem with understanding the code.
