Sorry for the wrong comment in the commit message. The start files are 
found by -L, the problem are the CRT begin and end files. You cannot 
specify them in linker scripts. I think we already talked about this 
when we moved the stuff from bsp_specs to GCC.

Without this patch its not possible to use powerpc BSPs. Now the 
rtems-examples build for all BSPs with some ENOMEM exceptions:
