package/gcc: transition PowerPC 32 to secureplt
PowerPC has two PLT models: BSS-PLT and Secure-PLT. BSS-PLT uses runtime code generation to generate the PLT stubs. Secure-PLT was introduced with GCC 4.1 and Binutils 2.17 (base has GCC 4.2.1 and Binutils 2.17), and is a more secure PLT format, using a read-only linkage table, with the dynamic linker populating a non-executable index table. References to other distro/BSD transitions: https://patchwork.openembedded.org/patch/106621/ https://reviews.freebsd.org/D20598 Fixes a bug observed when creating SELinux policy where all apps require execmem because the heap requires execute before this change.
