make-cross 1.5 is released

Hi, all!

I've placed a new make-cross on
alpha.gnu.org:/gnu/hurd/ghhk/make-cross, and it should appear shortly
on your nearest mirror.

This release fixes Marcus Brinkmann's most despised problem: producing
binaries that are accidentally linked against Linux libraries.

My solution is to generate a linker script that prevents GNU ld from
searching in the default Linux directories, and use it when
cross-compiling for the Hurd.

I don't expect to find any new and shocking problems with this script,
so let me know if you do.

If you don't know what make-cross is, then you probably don't need it.
If you're still curious, it's a way to generate a cheap Hurd
cross-compiler using your existing Linux/ELF toolchain.  If that
*still* doesn't make sense, then you *definitely* don't need it. ;)

Have fun,
