This seems like a reasonable idea, so I have gone ahead and applied
the patch.  I did make a minor change, which was to edit the format of
the help text displayed for the --with-lib-path option so that it
matches the format of the other entries.  I also added a note about
this new option to ld/README and ld/NEWS as well as a comment in
