--gc-sections can be used to remove unused sections when static linking
is done.


I have heard that in older versions like 2.15.92.0.2 ,using
--gc-sections one cannot do garbage collection when dynamic linking is
done while in newer versions of bintutils this is possible.


Please tell me if ld (binutils-2.15.92.0.2) can do garbage collection
when dynamic linking is done?If it can or cannot please provide
references of documents this it is written.
