3.4/3.5 PATCH: Allow passing -oldstyle_liblookup to Tru64 UNIX ld (PR other/1963)

This patch fixes PR other/1963 as suggested in the PR and by Jim Wilson:

Bootstrapped without regressions on alpha-dec-osf5.1b (mainline) and
alpha-dec-osf4.0f (3.4 branch).

Ok for mainline and branch?  Although this is not a regression, the fix is
strictly platform-specific, the bug is long standing and without a
workaround, so I'd really like this to go in for 3.4.1, too.

After testing this patch, it occured to me that it might be
useful/desirable to be able to pass -oldstyle_liblookup directly to gcc
instead of having to go through -Wl,-oldstyle_liblookup (as works for cc).
Unfortunately, the quick hack to the specs file, adding the corresponding
bypass the LINK_SPEC, didn't work: the option still got split as -o
ldstyle_liblookup.  Given that gcc only allows passing a small number of
well-known linker options directly without -Wl, this shouldn't be a
