	   I would like to know how one can debug the linker at source level. I have 
   not done this type of debugging before. How are there tools usually 
   debugged. I am not able to figure out how it is possible to debug a linker. 
   Is there any special way for debugging there ??

The tool you need is called gdb.  There's nothing special about the
linker; debugging it is just like debugging any other complex program.
If you've really never used a source level debugger, then you have a
pretty steep learning curve ahead of you.
