As i'm getting the same error with Petr, this is a resurrection of an old thread

The following is reproducible on Linux running 4.12.10 on x86_64, with 

cat > liblib.c <<EOF
#include <sys/stat.h>
void f (void) {
  struct stat sb;
  stat(0, &sb);

cat > main.c <<EOF

#include <sys/stat.h>

int main() {
   extern void f();
   struct stat st;
   stat ("/tmp", &st);
return 0;

tcc liblib.c -fPIC -shared -o liblib.so
tcc main.c -llib -L.

This fails with:
./a.out: Symbol `stat' causes overflow in R_X86_64_PC32 relocation

Any advice would be appreciated.
