I have just recognized that it is not necessary to recompile
the whole library, sorry. There are just a few library-internal calls that
cannot be relocated because the call is made between the start
of the text segment to the end of the text segment where the libraries
are located. When those few calls are fixed, the rest of the library can use the
faster 16-bit relocation.

Another idea: When all the libraries are linked to some fixed
location, they could now be shared between all applications, without
the overhead of having the same library attached to each
application.
