Rather than listing the architectures, perhaps it's easier to have
cmake take care of that automatically (I haven't tried this yet):

    set(CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS "${CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS} -Wl,--reduce-memory-overheads")
    set(CMAKE_SHARED_LINKER_FLAGS "${CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS} -Wl,--reduce-memory-overheads")
endif ()

Do you have an idea of how much slower this is in practice? The manual
says the algorithm goes from O(n) to O(n^2), which is no joke.
