linker_unload validate related issue (how to duplicate that?).

Just for the record validate fails since it is using ghc installed into 
bindisttest/install   dir/ subdirectory. The spaces here are really 
nasty test as my fix to linker_unload has not counted with the 
possibility of having ghc installed in such location (cut -d ' ' ... 
does bad thing in this case). So yes, that was me who broke validate but 
this should be already fixed by revert of problematic patch.

Sorry for that,
