For linux there is the gold linker that is said to be faster than ld, but it is linux only. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_%28linker%29


The upp guys made some modifications to ld that seem to speed it up, but I don't know if it can be used disassociated from their IDE. That article on gold mentions an interesting direction, incremental linking. That would be a welcome addition to the GNU toolchain... (ld has a -i option, but I am not sure whether it works the same way that incremental linking works in Borland or Microsoft compilers under windows).
