Re: speedup collect2 (by not using it)

Actually, I think that Mike's patch won't work on hppa64-hp-hpux11*.
It appears that gcc falls back to just using "ld" when it doesn't
run collect2.  This will fail because we have multiple linkers
and at least two supported linkers for the hppa64 port itself.
Thus, gcc will need to use the same linker selection mechanism
as collect2 in determining which linker to run.
