#12479
Summary

Apple has a nasty habit of breaking their linkers. This most recently
happened in Trac #12479, where an artificial section count limit was imposed,
breaking users linking against large objects (e.g. the ghc library).

It seems pretty clear that this isn't the right approach to the issue and it's not even clear that it would have been effective.
