Yes, I will remove this hack.

Fixing this in BFD is difficult, the PE and ELF backends don't care
about relocation format conversion.

the reduced+fixed objcopy to my branch of the source tree and modify
Makefile accordingly.

I don't see any other option which fits into the limited time I have for
this project.
