Sorry about the breakage.

It's not the best fix.  An empty string for something that is an
argument of -dynamic-linker will result in the linker eating the next
command line string for -dynamic-linker.  That will break -mcall-linux
on freebsd, if anyone should try to use that option.  (Chances are
that most of the -mcall options are broken anyway, but let's not break
them further.)

Since I broke powerpc*-freebsd and the other non-linux powerpc
targets, I guess I ought to fix them.  The following is a variation on
your first patch, that results in -mcall-linux for powerpc-freebsd*
providing the 32-bit powerpc-linux dynamic linker.

Tested with x86_64-linux to powerpc-linux, powerpc64le-linux and
powerpc-freebsd12.0 crosses, observing the effect of -muclibc, -mmusl
etc. on powerpc*-linux and -mcall-linux on powerpc-freebsd.  I'll also
do a full native powerpc64le-linux bootstrap and regression test.
