How come there is no ranlib step in old_archive_cmds?
Otherwise, if it causes no other testsuite regressions, it looks good to

That's too low for some packages.

Can you show how it would need to work?  If libtool reloads
  a.o b.o c.o             -> libfoo-1.o
  d.o e.o f.o libfoo-1.o  -> libfoo-2.o
and links
  g.o libfoo-2.o          ->

then which objects does CC -Tprelink_objects need to be run on?
