I'm trying to make cross compiling tools so that we can cross compile
platforms which used ld.old (gas.old seems to cross compile quite well).

Check out the .PATH directives in gnu/usr.bin/ld/ld/Makefile and in
gnu/usr.bin/ld/ (I think that's the one).

AFAIK CROSS_LINKER won't be defined in ld.aout_so's compilation, so it
will be unchanged.

Take care,
