I think this would be a good time to do it.  The longer before
we need things to get really stable before 4.9 the better.

Till and I are slinging code rapidly and broadly right now so
watch out for us.  But that shouldn't impact the .cfg files that

I have a few thoughts on this project:

+ I think most BSPs use the same LINK.c command with
the exception of a few that add arguments.  The two
that come to mind are the gen5200 and pc386.  If those
extra link arguments can be accounted for, the LINK.c,, and LINK.ada should be able to the same rule.
This would really be worth pursuing because duplication
is bad.

+ I assume we want the output of LINK.c to be the
equivalent of .nxe now and we need a new extension
for what we now call .exe.  Which leads to the next issue..

+ What is the replacement extension for .exe?
