[Linux-ia64] ld --relax should be on by default

Users of our IA64 compiler which uses the Cygnus/GNU
linker keep hitting a link overflow problem which is
fixed by using --relax.

Why is this not on by default?

At a very minimum the linker should itself suggest
using the option when the overflow occurs.

Thanks,
