    ld/gold: Add link-time optimization plugin support
    The binutils 2.22 ld.bfd and linkers were not configured to support
    link-time optimization plugins (-plugin switch) previously.  This changeset
    adds -plugin support to both linkers.  The ld.bfd linker was previously
    built statically, but it was necessary to change this to use the libc and
    libz shared libraries because the -plugin option requires the dynamic
    function dlopen().
    The same update was not applied to binutils 2.21 linkers.
