multimedia/gstreamer is not respecting environment upon linking stage

I will describe more precisely my problems.

I use gcc46 and binutils. The problem do not 
occur with base compiler.

After update of gstreamer, first port build stopped with:

"/usr/bin/ld: unrecognized option '-Bsymbolic-functions'"

/usr/bin/ld shouldn't been invoked at all when using 
gcc46, but as ugly band aid I temporarily linked  /usr/bin/ld  
to /usr/local/bin/ld.

Update went fine, then I deleted soft link. After that, I can
rebuild gstreamer with gcc46 without problems. (???)

While debugging unrelated sound problem, I rebuilt 
audio/gstreamer-plugins-vorbis with base compiler.

After that, to rebuild with gcc46 I again needed to 
link local ld. 

I don't know why sometimes base ld is used, when
it shouldn't.

Hope this is clearer. 

Have a nice day,
