This is almost certainly guaranteed to fail on 50% of the systems I have
ever used.  I think hardcoding the location of `ld' is a bad idea.

This idea, on the other hand, shows promise.  Since the script can run
`ld' from anywhere, perhaps all this needs in addition is something like:

	(here=`pwd`; cd /; ld; cd $here)

(to restore the original working directory afterwards).  Thanks, Per.
I'll look into this.
