Is there a way to make ld.gold the default?
Recent changes get rid of the binutils-gold package and put gold in
the normal binutils package. A side effect of this is that ld.bfd is
now the default, whereas ld.gold was the default with binutils-gold
Is there an official way to make ld.gold the default with the new
state of things, or is one expected to just manually change the
symlink in /usr/bin?
[Also, is there a reason gold _isn't_ the default? It seems to have
more features (e.g. --icf), and is apparently significantly faster on
large apps, so ...]

or reason, just a lot of incoherent shrieks and then it's over. --Ian Wolff
