Likely you have to use -Wl,--emit-relocs instead, since by nginx 
does not use linker directly, but rather calls it via compiler 

Note well that there is no need to edit objs/Makefile manually, 
there is the "--with-ld-opt" configure option, see 
http://nginx.org/en/docs/configure.html and/or output of the 
"./configure --help" command.
