Subject Re: ld: gold vs bfd

I have submitted issue 118769 for this bug [1], and fixed it by changing 
the order in which libraries and object files are listed on the gbuild 
linker command line.  I do not expect problems with this approach, 
because the modified order is the same one that is used by the dmake 
build system.  Although the actual changes may still contain errors: I 
tested them on Linux, Windows, and MacOSX but not on Solaris, OS/2, or 

Please see the issue comments for more details.

If somebody points out to me the proper place in the Wiki then I will 
document my changes of the gbuild system.  I have yet to find 
documentation about its inner workings.  So far I have only found 
information on how to use it.
