[fpc-pascal] Smart Link definition ?

Huh, sorry, it is me again...

About ld (the linker).

In ld doc:

=> -X --discard-locals
Delete all temporary local symbols. For most targets, this is all local
symbols whose names begin with L.

I guess that the fpc compiler option -CX is using that ld option -X to
"smart-link" their program.
Without any "customization" (yes/no ?).

If so, ld is responsable of the "smart-linking" and fpc has nothing to do
with it (yes/no ?).

And, of course, if it is the case, it should be the responsibility of ld to
take care about the sym-link that he creates. (yes/no?)

Many thanks. 


Many thanks ;-)
