What linker error did you get? You only posted "/usr/bin/ld: warning:
link.res contains output sections; did you forget -T?", but as the
message literally says that's a warning, not an error. It's even been in
the faq for 5 or more years: http://www.freepascal.org/faq.var#unix-ld219

What did we do that made it worse?

For Windows, we always provide all utilities ourselves, so that's easy.
For Linux, we assume the user set it up for development already using
their distribution's specific method (if you installed FPC 2.6.4 using
apt-get install, you should have everything you need already; if not,
file a bug report with your distribution).
