Hi Nick,

ah, silly me, I just thought to look at -L and friends.

Indeed, everything else would be just confusing.  This pretty much rules
out deprecating '=' in either gld or gcc, obviously.

I'll look into supporting $SYSROOT in gcc for symmetry, but that's about it.

Thanks for your patience ;-)
