patch 1/2 doesn't change any defaults ... just adds a new flag

patch 2/2 makes gold default to true because gold is so new and is easy to do

i'd like to do something with ld.bfd to default new-dtags-only to true for 
linux systems, but that's a bit harder to pull off in the current ld.bfd 
framework.  so i posted the current code as is since they're usable already.

in Gentoo, i plan on changing the ld.bfd default
