Bug#448154: Bug 448154 Nonrepresentable section on output
Hope this is useful.
I was able to recreate this bug on a powerpc box running RHEL 5, by (unknowingly) leaving an old '.so' library in the same directory as a new '.a' library. Removing the '.so' file cleared up the 'nonrepresentable section on output' error.
At first I had noticed that placing '-static' and '-shared' on either side of the '-lMyLibrary' fixed the problem.
