PATCH, doc: improve collect2 docs


The -B option to adjust the search path for subprograms such as ld is
ignored when gcc is configured with --with-ld.  In that case, the
DEFAULT_LINKER is always used.  This is arguably an undesirable
situation, but at the very least, the documentation should state the
current behaviour.

Okay for mainline?
