Interim (pontoon) bridges are the way forward for most successful
campaigns; often, you can't wait for the engineers to erect the
permanent bridge if you're looking to make progress. If it works for the
Navy and the Marine Corps, it'll probably work for us. :-)

Actually, this may be a much cleaner interim solution that the hack I
was planning inside the gcc4. It does require that the frontend's
gcc/gcc.c LINKER_NAME define be set appropriately. Getting that set
correctly might be an interesting configure hack, but easier than
hacking command specs in gcc/gcc.c.
