GNU binutils-2.16.1 chokes on empty libraries, MacOSX ar too

Hi,
I just tried to compile rockbox on Mac OS X (mine is intel), and got the
following issues: binutils 2.16.1 m68k-elf-ld doesn't like empty libraries
(libbitmapsmono.a and libbitmapsremotemono.a are empty for an H120 build).

Similarly, when building a simulator (only the core works on Mac OS X, dynamic
objects handling has to be rewritten), the Mac OS X "ar" chokes on building
empty libraries (GNU "ar" doesn't complain).

Conclusion, those libraries should not be built and linked against if they're
empty. Has anybody already solved this problem?
