Thanks.  Both of those options you suggested generated a non-segfaulting
binary with buggy Fedora binutils.  

I applied these commits and musl-gcc generates working binaries (without
needing to pass those ldflags):
6737a6b34f4823deb7142f27b4074831a37ac1e1
d55c3e36094f06bb1fb02f5eac19fdccf1d91f7e
28a27bdbb9500797e6767f80c8128b09112aeed5
d97f1f87b31901ccdb711ec88a0ab792c31d1f60

But I'll just wait till binutils-2.31.2 is released later this year,
Fedora probably doesn't bother cherry-picking...

Make check produces now
# of expected passes		2257
# of unexpected failures	28
# of expected failures		57
# of untested testcases		6
# of unsupported tests		16

which I hope is better than Fedora 29 2.31.1-25:
# of unexpected failures	39
