    Rework how iOS does linking (#8127) · 98b0d05d
    thoughtpolice authored
    iOS has some particular constraints about how applications can be built:
    
     * We must generate a static library (.a) since XCode does the final
       link.
     * We need to carefully give the right set of arguments to libtool in
       the case we're generating an archive.
     * Dynamic linking isn't supported.
     * It can only be done on OS X.
    
    This patch cleans up all of the above. We add a new flag `-staticlib`
    (only supported on Darwin) that allows us to produce archive files using
    libtool, and a -pgmlibtool flag to control which 'libtool' executable to
    use.
    
    This fixes #8127. I believe this is the last piece missing from the iOS
    cross compiler.
