unhelpful error message when link runs out of disk on AIX

When I try to link a program and there is inadequate disk space to do that,
gcc produces the confusing error message

collect2: ld returned 12 exit status

It would be nice if the message had the words 'disk' and 'space' in it.

This is with gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release).  config.guess gives
powerpc-ibm-aix4.1.4.0.
