Some of them can; notably the binutils ld, which comes from the same source
as and uses the same mechanism as objcopy.
The linker on OS X doesn't have this particular mechanism (although I think
it has other features that could be used toward the same end, if not in the
same way), and binutils ld does not work properly on OS X (nor does
objcopy, again because it's the same mechanisms; the BFD library doesn't
support Mach-O properly. This is probably why Apple at first shipped a
crippled version and later removed it entirely. You can install a full set
from MacPorts, but it breaks a *lot* of stuff...).
And Solaris's ld has still another way to do this kind of thing, IIRC.
