I had a look at this, and it seems like a useful objective.  However, unless I'm missing a step, [following the template of config.gcc:out_file] it seem to require a fair amount of modification (introduction of common-object placeholders etc. in the configury and - plus application and testing of this on multiple targets.  Not something I can realistically volunteer to do in the immediate future.

Therefore, I'm going to suggest keeping this patch 'as is' and following up later, when there is more time available, with a patch for the other modification.
