I agree this needs fixing.  I'm disappointed that despite Jason's 
objection to my proposals nothing has come of all this.

On the 2.0 branch my inclination would be to go with the link script that 
does the correct thing rather than trying to create shell scripts that 
magic this all up from elsewhere.

Principle of least complexity...
