Well, it's a slightly different situation: Solaris has a vendor-provided
linker, and if we want GNU ld to be a drop-in replacement for that linker it
has to use the same defaults. Especially as Solaris ld doesn't apparently
accept the `--dynamic-linker' option, and GNU ld doesn't currently accept -I.
