ruiu added a comment.

That error message was not a replacement for comments because it didn't answer what CONSTRUCTOR is. Is it a new feature that our linker does not support yet, or is it for a bug compatibility, or for compatibility with other object file formats? Don't you wonder that kind of things if you just read your code as a third person?

You should mention that CONSTRUCTORS is for the a.out format which died out in '90s in major Unix systems but we need to accept it for compatibility.
