You're probably right.

As far as I can remember[1], the main issue is that Fedora Core 3
introduced a randomization of libc mappings that impact the way GCL is
saving its image. So, in that particular case, the feature to detect
is randomized mapping of libraries.

Best wishes,

[1] The Makefile.pamphlet says "Fedora Core 3 needs special GCL
options for local bfd." but it does not say *why* the local bfd is
necessary. Writting good doc is probably as hard as writting good
code. :-(
