From this I can see that you are using GNU ld:

configure:4645: checking for ld used by gcc
configure:4712: result: /home/kirkby/bin/ld
configure:4721: checking if the linker (/home/kirkby/bin/ld) is GNU ld
configure:4736: result: yes

I think that besides these extra gripes you will find the annoyance factor of GNU ld increases once you see how it behaves when performing 64-bit builds, or discover that the Sun compiler is not able to use the libraries output by GCC due to the injection of additional symbols.
