I am going through the link errors and found a message about the .sbss section not being supported.

Question is, what is a .sbss section? a static bss section?

Maybe secondary BSS?
I don't have a clue, possibly it could be the ".static" section, or maybe it's a typo?

The 's' stands for short. There really is no need for this under win32, but this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/1100/hood/default.aspx makes mention of how the "short" data area might be used on a 64 bit system.

uhm... wierd one, but i google-d "sbss section" and found that it somekind related to linux ELF/x86 format stuff.

but found something here:
"Put small uninitialized global and static data in the .sbss section, which is adjacent to the .sdata section"

Ok, to me it look like (at leas in ELF) the sbss is a shared bss segment, sound usefull to me.
