This change introduced many failures on Solaris with /bin/ld, e.g.

FAIL: go.test/test/bom.go -O (test for excess errors)

ld: warning: symbol 'go$zerovalue' has differing sizes:
        (file bom.o value=0x8; file /var/gcc/regression/trunk/11-gcc/build/i386-pc-solaris2.11/./libgo/.libs/ value=0x800);
        bom.o definition taken and updated with larger size
