I see this problem with my Ubuntu installation, too, building from
source. Actually, I think this problem was reported before, but the
report fell through the cracks.

As Dimitris suggested, it's a mismatch between using `gcc' to compile
and raw `ld' to link. I'll investigate switching mzc's default linker
under Linux to be the compiler instead of raw `ld'.
