ld --oformat is a misfeature.  Don't use it.  As you have found, it doesn't
work except for the simplest of object files, and only then on a very limited
set of targets.  You are much better off linking to your usual target, then
converting the file with objcopy.

I'll leave this bug open rather than closing as WONTFIX in the hope that the
next person intending to report a problem with --oformat will first look in our
bug database and see this one.  I doubt very much that any of the active
binutils maintainers will do anything to improve ld --oformat support.
