RFA: PATCH to add -fno-gnu-unique for c++/60731

Use of STB_GNU_UNIQUE to avoid problems with variable symbols shared between two RTLD_LOCAL plugins and a common library dependency causes problems with libraries that depend on dlclose/dlopen to reinitialize state. This patch adds a -fno-gnu-unique flag that such libraries can use.

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.  OK for trunk?

+@item -fno-gnu-unique

+On systems with recent GNU assembler and C library, the C++ compiler

+@code{RTLD_LOCAL} plugins depending on a definition in one of them and
+therefore disagreeing with the other one about the binding of the
