For wheezy I'm planning to change the linking behaviour for DSOs

http://wiki.debian.org/ToolChain/DSOLinking. I would like to know
about issues with these changes on some of the Debian ports, and if
we need to disable one of these changes on some port.
--no-add-needed sounds like it'll cause a *lot* of build failures for no
particular gain. I don't think it's a good idea.
I think it is. Besides fixing potential bugs, else you'll never be able
to use gold as the linker. See the already filed bug reports.
This change is one I can agree with on technical grounds, though it
will cause a great deal of pain in the short term. Have we got any
estimates on exactly how much breakage will result before the change
referenced in the first email of this thread.
