    binutils225: Add plugin support in ar, nm, ranlib.
    This finally adds support for --plugin [] flag usage.
    Default loadable plugins should be symlinked to binutils private
    /usr/libexec/binutils225/bfd-plugins/ directory.
    For now that directory is not created by mtree and gcc does not
    install symlink to its private
    TBD if we want this implicit LTO support without explicit --plugin.
    Note that bfd plugin enabled utilities will try to load *anything*
    residing in that directory, even hangman(6)!
    Still, support for it is useful for local experimentation since this
    allows to test even without lots of edits in Makefiles.
