Hi Scott,

Good work!  Thanks for taking the pressure off me :-)

Please commit to HEAD as well: It's nice to have all the NEWS in one file when you are browsing a HEAD release. And it helps us check that all sensible branch bug-fixes are ported to HEAD before we roll a new point-oh.

+* `-pthread' and similar options are honoured when linking shared libraries. +* -no-suppress in compile mode shows compiler output for both PIC and non-PIC
+  object compilation.
+* New link mode option `-precious-files-regex' to prevent accidental removal + of files you want to keep, such as test coverage data, from the temporary
+  output directory.
+* Directories specified in /etc/ are no longer hardcoded on Linux. +* Recognises the 'R' symbol type on Solaris so read-only symbols can be
+  exported.
