I believe that this can be enabled by turning the "-z combreloc" option
to "ld" on by default (probably by using a patch). However, this breaks
binary compatibility with existing packages, which makes upgrading to
this new functionality quite a challenge. It may be something that must
be enabled (via a USE var) at bootstrap-time only.
>From the "ld" man page:
"combreloc" combines multiple reloc sections and sorts them to make
dynamic symbol lookup caching possible.
This feature may need additional glue in the dynamic linker. I'm not
sure if the support is there yet. You can probably do a google search
for "combreloc" and get more information.
