If we wanted it to reflect just current usage, yes. I've always thought of
it as a more general-purpose flag, that was only currently used in limited
situations. There are lots of features that the GNU binutils support and
others don't; the vector stabs are just one, and an increasingly irrelevant
one at that.
However, most of these features are rather version dependent, and the
recent trend has been towards testing for these features at configure time,
rather than runtime; perhaps we should do that for init_priority, as well.
And perhaps for the vector stabs, for that matter, though they're really
only relevant for a.out.
