This is a new warning that was added to ld.

FPC puts a linker script in link.res, and this linker script specifies
(a.o.) output sections.

It's to specify a linker script to ld. If you put a linker script in
link.res, then it gets "appended" to the internal default ld linker
script. If you specify it with -T, then it completely overrides the
default linker script. As far as I know, ld has always behaved this
way. The warning was added because you seldom want to append your own
linker script to the default one.
However, I don't know whether it's intentional or not that FPC does
not override ld's default internal linker script, so I'm not changing
