I'd like to ask toolchain herd a review of the attached patch to toolchain
eclass.. it adds an extra functions that check if the selected linker is a GNU
ld. This will allow Gentoo/ALT to define a wrapper to apply -Wl,-z,now (that
does not work when the linker is not GNU ld) working on all Gentoo/ALT
The code is the same used by autoconf to recognize GNU ld.

That was toolchain-funcs eclass, of course.
I'll handle all of this on portability eclass, so that your toolchain-funcs
don't get all full of this.
