I would not claim to be up on present compilers, or C, but to me it
looks like the compile options.

/start useless knowledge
-fPIC gives you position independent code, i.e. the kernel can put it
anywhere in ram and it will work; the benefit of that is that a hacker
can't rely on a program appearing anywhere in particular. PUSH, and POP
are assembler instructions, and assembler is _not_ position independent,
so ram adresses you might put in as labels get hardcoded into numbers
during the assembly process. This is less secure, in that a hacker can
rely on this bit of code being at a particular address any time it's
running, so he can execute a 'jump to' and land on it.
/end useless knowledge

There must be a way of compiling without -fPIC. I have a hardened system
here (linuxfromscratch) and that provides gcc -fno-pic as a compile
option, so that's worth a try. 

This error seems similar to yours.

BTW, there also appears to be a bigger difference between amd and intel
in the 64 bit cpus than we are used to on 32 bit. 
        With Best Regards,
