Patch part 1, by Mauricio de Oliveira


On ppc64el, imake passes -mminimal-toc from CCOPTIONS to LDOPTIONS.
That causes builds that use it to fail, like so:

	ld -shared  -o libsciplot.so.1.36 SciPlot.o SciPlotUtil.o  -mminimal-toc       -lXm [...]      -soname libsciplot.so.1 -lc
	ld: unrecognised emulation mode: minimal-toc
	Supported emulations: elf64lppc elf32lppc elf32lppclinux elf32lppcsim 
elf32ppclinux elf32ppc elf32ppcsim elf64ppc
	make[2]: *** [shared] Error 1

The above happens on building sciplot on Debian.
The full log can be seen at [1].
There is also a bug report on Debian bug tracking system [2] with a patch.

I applied the patch on the git version of xorg/utils/cf and generated 2 diff files split by authors.

Imake.tmpl is used on systems which use non-GNU make, so can't have GNU-make
specific entries such as:

      LDOPTIONS := $(filter-out $(NOTLDOPTIONS),$(LDOPTIONS))
