Bug#152130: more info

retitle 152130 -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections break ia64 compile

After some poking around, it turns out that 1.10.3 builds fine on ia64 if the
options -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections arguments are removed.

Discussion on IRC suggests that these were added as an attempt at optimization
based on toolchain documentation that talks about side-effects of these options
without directly explaining what they do.  I don't understand what the tradeoff
actually is, but it's clear to me that breaking the ability to build on one or
more architectures isn't a good thing.

Both gcc-2.97 (default on ia64) and 3.X fail similarly to build this on ia64.
