Could this break parity support? I know It's not in the tree yet, but I
still hope, that ralf comes to looking into my patch some day....

I guess neither cccl nor parity will work with GNU ld right now, BUT: M$ own
cc and cc89 scripts (which are used by M$ to build nearly the whole system
with MSVC as backend) use GNU ld, maybe those aren't too important, since
not many people except M$ use it, but still ...

Use parity instead :)
