Without knowing the error that 'ld' gave, nor the system on which you had
this error, nor the reason why a particular version of 'ld' should be
avoided, I can't put real info into a README. It just seems to me that
you were unlucky enough with a particular GNU ld snapshot. That happens.
GNU gettext is not too demanding w.r.t. the linker: all it does is to
create shared libraries with dependencies, and pretty much every version
of GNU ld can do so on ELF systems.
