Ah, this explains why along my various tests at some point I managed
to remove two of these errors (likely with -m64)!

Sure, as long as this works for most users, that's likely fine.
Alternately, are there equivalent sequences of instructions that achieve
the same on older architectures, and would that be relevant ?

One future improvement I'll need will be to store the envp value into a
global "environ" variable, and run over it to catch the pointer that
follows the NULL and save it into the "_auxv" variable. I've done it for
all other archs here already:

I'll give it a try once I'm able to build and test your code, and may
ask you for some help if I don't succeed in doing it. If you want to do
it yourself, please have a look at the last commits adding environ and
auxv to any arch of your choice, such as x86_64.
