I meant that it would be nice if all architectures could use a linkcmds.base.  Editing all these slightly different files was no real fun.

Good question, my quick and dirty patch is a good test, but it requires several host tools, e.g.

sparc-rtems4.12-nm ticker.exe | grep _Linker_set | sort | cut -d ' ' -f 3 > actual-linkersets.txt
diff /home/sh/rtems-4.12/c/src/../../testsuites/samples/ticker/linkersets.txt actual-linkersets.txt

I am not sure if this would add new requirements on the development host. Not a big deal on Linux, but ...
