GoldFixes

This page describes a series of patches for various applications to compile when using the Gold linker. Some worked out of the box, so are marked Works. The Ones marked Fixed had mostly easy fixes. The last few marked Not Fixed are going to need more work.

I grabbed all the sources by using apt-get source on a machine running an up to date version of Maverick. I then used dpkg-buildpackage to do the initial build so any future changes I made would be configured the same as the packages are built for Ubuntu. Since most all of these were autotools problems, I used autoreconf to reconfigure after any changes.

I tried making patches based on the bzr sources in Launchpad for most of these, but there were often other build & configure bugs that made this a time derain, unrelated to making these packages link with Gold.
