That's what I thought at the time, too, and still think so.  However,
I'm sure there was a reason why we did things this way.  I unfortunately
don't recall the details.

I missed part of the thread.  Is the system linker being using instead
of the compiler?  I thought that we were using the compiler in all
cases, and that we were manually prepending and appending start files
and libraries.  Is that not the case, i.e. are we using the linker?
