Hm. Devpac could be using TEXT-relative symbol offsets in its
symbol table. Whereas e.g. GCC uses offsets that are relative to
the section where those symbols are, and so do some other things
(for which I fixed Hatari a while ago).
I added code to Hatari to try to load the DATA & BSS symbols
as TEXT relative if loading them as relative to their own
section fails (i.e. offsets would be outside of that section).
Does symbol loading work now?
If not, please provide Hatari "info basepage" output for your
program and Atari "nm" tool ouput for your binary symbol table.
PS. If somebody knows a flag in program header or DRI symbols
which tells to what the offsets are supposed to be relative to,
I would appreciate it.
