Do you see differences between ppas.sh and link.res with and without
smartlinking ohter than --gc-sections?

If you compile without smartlinking but with -s and add --gc-sections to the
ppas.sh file yourself, what happens then?

(rationale: maybe smartlinking taking a different path in t_bsd, finding a
different ELF interpreter, linking C etc?)

Does it matter if you import unit "cmem" into your test program?
