We know (I can say at least for Stefan and myself), but gcc+binutils is 
multi-platform and highly configurable. So the question is, how was yours 
configured ? You can get a list by typing "ld --help" and look for the magic 
word "supported" ;) e.g.:
ld: supported targets: elf64-x86-64 elf32-i386 a.out-i386-linux efi-app-ia32 
elf64-little elf64-big elf32-little elf32-big srec symbolsrec tekhex binary 
ld: supported emulations: elf_x86_64 elf_i386 i386linux
check for elf32-i386

Sounds like a plan to me. Do you have any further plans to run it on real 
hardware as well ? After all, that's what this is all about.

Certainly not me.
