I have the same problem in my aboriginal linux toolchain, which is
also the last gplv2 releases of gcc and binutils. (It's not exaclty
being ignored, but it's not working right either.)

Fixing it is on my todo list, but at the moment I'm trying to get a
release out with the new wrapper and uClibc (and linux 3.15) to just
fix part of the problem and have the release version less behind.
(Fixing this shouldn't be all that _hard_, it's just out of scope for
this release which is _already_ hugely overdue...)
