Sure, just build binutils per the usual procedure (see for a general guide, if you need
that), and build just xgcc--- the bootstrap compiler (the "make
all-gcc install-gcc" target).  At that point, I think you've got what
you're looking for.

Compile with -c or -S, link with a ton of options including the name
of the linker command file.  Presto?
