Yes, this does look like it needs fixing.  Currently in my
local config/pa/pa64-hpux.h I have:

#undef LINK_SPEC
#define LINK_SPEC \
  "+Accept TypeMismatch -E %{mlinker-opt:-O} %{!shared:-u main} %{static:-a 
archive} %{shared:-b}"

For use with the HP linker on PA64.  This would obviously be wrong for
the GNU ld though so we need this to vary based on what linker is used.

I do not know of anyone working on a GNU ld for HP-UX IA64.  We have
just been using the HP linker.
