Hello,

The following implements Dave's patch as per Chris's suggestions. Chris
argued that you should be able to "figure out how to turn on the tsaware
flag without reading the texinfo documentation". That convinced me that
a separate switch for each flag was not only simpler to implement but
also simpler for the user.

The MS linker uses /ALLOWBIND:NO  to set the
IMAGE_DLLCHARACTERISTICS_NO_BIND bit.  It may be better to rename the
--no-bind option to --no-allowbind.

Tested on i686-mingw32 and x64-mingw32
