Subject: DJGPP compiling problem - please help

I tried to compile a source file with DJGPP 2.01 and got this error

C:\SOURCE>gcc -c cpu.c -o cpu.o
BFD: cpu.o: .data: reloc overflow: 0x100c5 > 0xffff
e:/djgpp/tmp\cceaaaaa: Assembler messages:
e:/djgpp/tmp\cceaaaaa:80319: Error: bfd_coff_swap_scnhdr_out failed

There is a jump table with 65536 pointers to functions in the source
It seems that DJGPP doesn't support more than 65535 functions. 
Is there any possibility to get this compiled?

gnu c for linux compiles this without problems.

please answer directly because I have not subscribed to the mailing

thanks in advance.
