And why it is currently broken when used with object files generated  
by newer gcc versions: http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=30614

There is no such thing  as a "unix linker: different unix platforms  
use different object formats, and hence need separate linker support  
(just like you need separate linker support for Windows and Linux).  
Some people have worked on ELF (ELF is the object format used by Linux  
and recent *BSD versions) linker support support from time to time,  
but that work is not finished.
