-ffat-lto-objects is automatically active for hosts not supporting the
linker plugin.  Is gcc-ar$(exeext) unconditionally built and found
on such hosts?  Will gcc-ar work without finding a linker plugin
on such hosts?

As I think the non-linker-plugin path is not really interesting the
patch is ok as-is.  Just be prepared to followup with a fix for
such hosts (darwin I suppose, and other non-ELF hosts).

Thanks,
Richard.
