[5/21] Set config.dynamic_link for AIX

Like many ELF targets, the AIX port generates dynamic objects by default.
However, config.dynamic_link is FALSE by default, so any attempt to link
directly against a shared object (as opposed to an archive that contains
a shared object) results in an "attempted static link of dynamic object FOO"

Fixed by setting config.dynamic_link to true by default, just as we do
for GNU/Linux.  Test coverage is provided by later patches.

OK to install?


	* emultempl/aix.em (gld${EMULATION_NAME}_before_parse): Set
	config.dynamic_link to TRUE.
