IMHO you should already be happy with the internal linker because you are 
now able to create a smartlinked lazarus without requiring 1+ GB of memory.

Please stop asking for pathetic requirements. Especially for things where 
you don't know where you are talking about and therefor without in-depth 
analyses where things could be improved.
