Another note:

In OpenSuSE 10.2 RC1 it's possible to pass the "--hash-style=" too,
however looking at the gcc specs the default is the "old" hash-style and
hash-type is not mentioned in the specs.
Binutils in OpenSuSE is Binutils- and Fedora Core uses a HJL
binutils too.

Normally to binutils it's possible to pass the "--hash-size=" while with
the patches they use it's possible to pass the hash-type too.
