No, the problem is the "text relocations" and "relocations remain
against non-writeable, allocatable section .rodata". The build
process is trying to link libz.a (non-pic) into a (pic) .so file.

Try compiling the libz with -fpic in the compiler cflags. Or build a
libz.so. It has been a VERY long time since I've had to deal with
this toolchain, but I do recall that it rigidly enforces PIC code and
shared libs.

Or, you could try --disable-shared for the svn configure script...
