What if someone wants to use the linker directly by itself?

If there is a "right" dynamic linker for Solaris, then the linker
should use it by default.  Otherwise, we're just making our users work
harder.

That doesn't mean we should use -dynamic-linker in GCC, too.  Doing
that makes us work with old versions of GNU ld, which is certainly
good.
