This is why pdump is so desirable.

unexec has to have incestuous knowledge of what ld does. If ld
changes (eg, the -z combreloc, AKA Hannibal Lecter, feature), unexec
pdump, OTOH, basically amounts to implementing a special-purpose ld
(ie, it only knows how to link Lisp data together), bypassing the
details of the system ld altogether.
