Sorry, I made a mistake with the Git bisect. It doesn't work on the master. So, there must be indeed some configuration error on my side. How can I end up with a generic linker? I use this configure command line:

../binutils-git/configure --prefix=/opt/rtems-4.12 --target=powerpc-rtems4.12 '' --enable-deterministic-archives --disable-nls --disable-werror --disable-gdb --disable-libdecnumber --disable-readline --disable-sim
