hashstyle=both or hashstyle=gnu is missing.
--hash-style=both or --hash-style=gnu is missing.
Please could you explain more about this bug ?
I looked at the manpage for ld and saw this:
Set the type of linker's hash table(s). style can be either "sysv"
for classic ELF ".hash" section, "gnu" for new style GNU
".gnu.hash" section or "both" for both the classic ELF ".hash" and
new style GNU ".gnu.hash" hash tables. The default is "sysv".
Are you saying that this information is not enough ?
I have man pages version 1.6e installed.
I haven´t found any entry, which discribes --hash-style=*.
Correction of last post:
I have man-pages version 2.67 installed and no entry for hash-style=*
Err, sorry, there seems to be some confusion here. The latest release of the
linker (and its man page) is version 2.18. The current mainline development
version is 18.104.22.16871107. There is no version 2.67 nor a version 1.6e. How
are you obtaining the version numbers you reported ?
I have binutils version 2.18 installed.
Version of man pages is 2.67.

The binutils man page comes from binutils, not from the man-pages
Please can you upload a compressed copy of the linker manpage then. In the
version I have here (from the 2.18 sources) there definitely is an entry for the
--hash-style option which mentions "sysv", "gnu" and "both".
Can you also tell me how you built this manpage ?
You can download the tar.bz2 image from here:
and navigate to gentoo->distfiles and binutils-2.18.
I could not upload this file, since it was too large.

I did that. I built the linker and checked the manual page and sure enough,
there was the entry for --hash-style and it does mention all three possible
arguments for the switch's value.
What does your linker manual page look like ?
Actually I check the latest version binutils and the manual did contain
