It is sad that libgcrypt builds on a huge variety of platforms using all
kinds of toolchains but the only linker whichs yields problem is the one
supposed to replace the standard binutils based GNU ld :-(

It would be much better to fix that shiny golden linker than to fix
makefiles around for a decade and more.  All the trouble of C double
plus now hitting those who try avoid it.

Okay, will do so for.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
