Unix linkers have always supported '-R file' to take symbol definitions from a
"reference file" that is not itself included in the link.

In GNU linkers, this is also spelled '--just-symbols file'.
The -R switch is overloaded to mean --rpath if the name given is a directory,
or traditional -R (aka --just-symbols) if it's not a directory.

This is a feature we're going to rely on in building Fuchsia's kernel (Zircon).
