I thought enabling collect2 would be simpler and I don't really know
anything about Mach-O object formats.

If you think using crt* is better, that's fine with me.  I'll table
your collect2 patch for now.

Sounds fine.

When you actually submit the changes, it's better to submit them
against the mainline tree.  Things change rapidly in this project, so
the egcs-1.1 code may not necessarily match the current egcs sources.
