    So if I understand correctly, ORDINARY_LINK just means use `$(CC)' for
    what would normally be the Makefile LINK variable.


      /* GNU libc requires ORDINARY_LINK so that its own crt0 is used.
         Linux is an exception because it uses a funny variant of GNU libc.  */

    I don't know about the first sentence, but I think the second isn't
    true on modern systems,

Could you explain at greater length how it is not true?

                            and it's not clear whether it would be an
    advantage if the gnu-linux configuration was be changed for
    configurations using libc6.

I don't understand--what change are you contemplating?
