Nak.  This is a more serious problem:

My system is:
gcc version 4.1.3 20070929 (prerelease) (Ubuntu4.1.2-16ubuntu2)

My sections are as follows:
.ram start 0xfffc0000 size 0x10098
.rom start 0xfffd0098 size 0xfac8
.id  start 0xfffefd2 

On the log from abuild, we can interpolate the results.  .ram start is
hardcoded, and .rom starts immediately after .ram.  So, based on this 

Section .id [00000000ffffefd2 -> 00000000ffffefef] overlaps section .rom
[00000000fffedd7c -> 00000000fffff96f]

We see that the .ram is (0xfffedd7c - 0xfffd0098) 122084 bytes larger on
the abuild machine then it is on my machine.   That certainly isn't because
of little changes in the compiler.  And .rom too has an increase,
(0xfffff96f - 0xfffedd7c = 72691), which is 8491 bytes larger then my box.

Something is amiss here, and I need to put my head down with Stefan and 
figure it out.  But in the meantime, hiding the problem isn't going to help
