I am sorry I do not know without testing it.

Having the start files in linkercmd files is something I have wondered about for
a long time and I think it is a good idea. I think anything that removes our
dependence on per BSP or even external specs file is a good thing.

I think the way we have a BPS centric build and install makes it difficult to
generalise. For example any configure script that tests for networking fails
without the full BSP set of options plus -lbsd.
