The SunPro documentation (on Solaris) states that the option is passed 
to ld, and both Solaris and Linux use that flag for the same purpose. 
Do we have SunPro installed on any of our Linux build servers?  I am not 
aware of it being available anywhere, but I could be mistaken.  If it is 
available, I'll run a test build there prior to committing the patch.
