Umm... no actually.

Long story:  I had it there and then disabled it as I got confused with 
enabling LTO plugin support for the BFD linker which requires gcc to be 
built with --enable-gold, which I do not want to do yet.  But that is 
unneeded for plugin support in the gold linker and the BFD LTO plugin is 
only actually available in binutils git so none of that mattered 
anyway...  So I should re-enable it.

I also noticed I did not enable threading support for the gold linker. 
I will do a rebuild of binutils enabling both of those tomorrow.
