relocation overflow for relocation entry


I have compiled and installed f2c from bell-labs under os x public beta (2E14) without trouble. I have applied f2c to several programs with success, but upon trying to compile (actually link) a large program, ld blew up in my face with a "relocation overflow for relocation entry" error message. Needless to say this is fatal. Does anyone have any idea of how to increase the address range for the relocation to avoid this error message? This was all done using the developer environment that apple provides for download. I suppose I could compile f2c for codewarrier 6 and try its linker, but it seems like a lot of trouble for no real gain. Any ideas?
