While reading the GNU ld manpage:
| A number of modifiers (mod) may immediately follow the p keyletter,  to
| specify variations on an operation's behavior:
| [...]
| S   Do not generate an archive symbol table.  This can speed up  build-
|     ing  a  large  library in several steps.  The resulting archive can

|     must  omit  the S modifier on the last execution of ar, or you must
|     run ranlib on the archive.

Is there any reason we don't use this?  Should I hack up a patch for it?
