Attached is a patch to libpayload to fix that problem.  This
patch just removes the entire if statement for now, but we do
need some way to pass a compiler that isn't named 'gcc' to the 
script - options for doing that are welcome.

Also, this patch includes a -ldscript option for bayou and
FILO to pass a custom ldscript to the process while retaining
the other lpgcc benefits.
