Wouldn't we have to do a full link-edit on the target machine to make
that work portably?  One of the nice things about binbuilds is that we
don't give a rip whether the user has a working ld (just an example).
We don't want to care whether or not somebody has working binutils.

How many problems does it cause?  Having to give gdb a different name
is a problem (minor), but how many others are there?
