Description Joe Kappus 2012-05-22 19:20:27 UTC
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-fuse-ld=gold'

at end of build.

I think someone forgot to add: 

Tested, it patches cleanly, I don't have time atm to recompile but I'll report back later. I'm 99% sure it'll fix the build.

Reproducible: Always

I should note, this will only affect those using >=gcc-4.7.0.  The flag was removed. Probably why it was missed.
