Usually, an assertion failure in a build tool (like the linker, in this
case) is a bug in the build tool, not in the software being built.  My
advice is to, first, make sure that you're using the latest conveniently
installable version of the linker and other tools.  If you are, then I'd
suggest trying to make small changes to the OVS Python C extension.  If
you find one that fixes the problem, please submit it as a patch to OVS
and we'll see if the new version still makes sense and, if so, apply it
as a bug fix.
