I committed the following patch to add thin archive support to gold.

2008-03-31  Cary Coutant  <ccoutant@google.com>

	Add thin archive support.
	* archive.cc (Archive::armagt): New const.
	(Archive::setup): Remove task parameter and calls to unlock.
	(Archive::unlock_nested_archives): New function.
	(Archive::read_header): Add nested_off parameter. Change
	all callers.
	(Archive::interpret_header): Likewise.
	(Archive::include_all_members): Change to handle thin
	archives.
	(Archive::include_member): Likewise.
	* archive.h (Archive::Archive): Add new parameters and
	initializers.
	(Archive::armagt): New const.
	(Archive::setup): Remove task parameter.
	(Archive::unlock_nested_archives): New function.
	(Archive::read_header): Add nested_off parameter.
	(Archive::interpret_header): Likewise.
	(Archive::Nested_archive_table): New typedef.
	(Archive::is_thin_archive_): New field.
	(Archive::nested_archives_): New field.
	(Archive::options_): New field.
	(Archive::dirpath_): New field.
	(Archive::task_): New field.
	* readsyms.cc (Read_symbols::do_read_symbols): Add check
	for thin archives.  Pass additional parameters to
	Archive::Archive.  Unlock the archive file after calling
	Archive::setup.

I'll add new tests later when we get the configure test for the ar 'T' option.
