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 to
recognize "symbianelf" as identical to "elf".

Looking at ld/emulparams/, though, and comparing it to
ld/emulparams/, it looks like some special symbols may need
to be defined.  That will require more work.
