There's no real disadvantage in passing it unconditionally (marginally longer link times) and potentially a big benefit.
We only ship clang in FreeBSD 9 or later, so in our own copy it can be
unconditional. FreeBSD 8 and earlier still use ld 2.15, which doesn't
support --hash-style. But to not inconvenience users of the clang port,
it would be nice to pass it only for freebsd9 and later.

Sure, I'll commit this now, and merge it to stable/9 later.
