 apologies, julien: as an outsider i'm not completely familiar with
the guidelines.  the reduction in memory-usage at the linker phase
"-Wl,--no-keep-memory" however - and the associated inherent
slowly-inexorably-increasing size is i feel definitely something that
affects all ports.

 it is really *really* tricky to get any kind of traction *at all*
with people on this.  it's not gcc's problem to solve, it's not one
package's problem to solve, it's not any one distros problem to solve,
it's not any one port's problem to solve and so on, *and* it's a
slow-burn problem that's taking *literally* a decade to become more
and more of a problem.  consequently getting reports and feedback to
the binutils team is... damn hard.
