I was the one that made this decision two-ish years ago.   It was
the thing to do at the time.   Now I'd like to change it.

OpenServer is a mixed COFF and ELF target. [ If I knew what a pain
two years ago this was going to be, I would have never thought about
supporting it... ] At the time, it looked like COFF was going to stay
strong.  Now, the newer versions of SCO's own tools don't generate COFF
and COFF is quickly becoming the second-class citizen.  This patch
reverses the BFD defaults and will improve our ability to place nicely
with GCC 2.8.0 which emits ELF by default.
