Hi all,
I am trying to run x264 on a 64 bit x86, but I got the following error:
./bin/parsecmgmt -a run -c gcc-hooks -p x264
[PARSEC] Benchmarks to run:  x264

[PARSEC] [========== Running benchmark x264 ==========]

My system is ubuntu x86_64
gcc version: 4.1.3

Has anyone seen this "unexpected reloc type" error before? One thing I 
want to mention is that x264 was running fine on my other 32 bit system. 
Only when I switched to compiling and running on 64 bit, this problem 
occurred.

Thanks for the help,
Binh
