That reminds me: Apple's gcc definitely uses a different link
editor. I ran into problems with this fact once or twice, but I can't
remember exactly what the problems were. I think it needed some funky
command-line option to work the way I needed it to sometimes. But the
problem was fairly rare; and chances are a specialized package of
whatever tool you're looking for is on that MacOS ports site.
