Well, it's a slightly different situation: Solaris has a vendor-provided 
linker, and if we want GNU ld to be a drop-in replacement for that linker it 
has to use the same defaults.  Especially as Solaris ld doesn't apparently 
accept the `--dynamic-linker' option, and GNU ld doesn't currently accept -I.
