What is different between arm-none-elf and arm-none-symbianelf, and
how do does differences affect the linker?
If there is no effect on the linker then you probably just need to
edit the handling of ENABLE_GOLD in the top-level configure.ac to
recognize "symbianelf" as identical to "elf".
Looking at ld/emulparams/armsymbian.sh, though, and comparing it to
ld/emulparams/armelf.sh, it looks like some special symbols may need
to be defined. That will require more work.
