One thing I found in testing is that it doesn't handler older LD
versions well enough:
ld: unrecognized option '--orphan-handling=warn'
Could we just detect the availability of this flag, and emit a warning
if it doesn't exist but otherwise not abort the build?
This is with:
GNU ld version 2.25-17.fc23
