Which of those flags are important for HP-UX 10.20 ld?

Good catch BTW!

Yes, but that is fragile.  At least, it would need a comment that
whatever is added to new_inherited_linker_flags should also be
understood by the linker iff $LD is used to link.

Then, do we need to pass any of those flags to $LD while doing partial
linking (reload_cmds)?  Probably not, but I'm not sure.

It'd be good to have a test for this; the use of $LD in archive_cmds
will likely provoke other failures; putting all of them in a test may
help us preserve libtool functioning on HP-UX 10.20.  (I can try to
write one once we've settled on the rest.)
