I had thought that the original canonical ELF layouts with headers in text
were the norm and there would be only a few outliers.  I guess there are
many.  It's certainly far from being only *-*-linux* and *-*-gnu* that have this
layout, though.

I added *-*-nacl* too, since that's the target whose needs motivated
the feature.

No idea what that might be about.  The test is quite simple.
