Unfortunately, this may not be the case. Darwin doesn't use elf, it
uses Mach-O.  There is some old support for this format in the NeXT
code, but doesn't build, no surprise.  My next task is to see Darwin
uses gnu binutils or something else.  It's possible mach-o will be
supported by bfd on darwin.

It worked for me here on SuSE (x86).
