I know that the Atari startup code ignores the linker config, but that's not a
problem with the linker config but with the startup code:-) There's no real
reason, why using a value from the linker config should not work.

Things like this are the reason why even small Atari programs have a big
memory footprint. If you decide all these things at runtime, there is no way
to exclude unwanted code. The only way to change that is to make the decisions
at compile or link time. Yes, that would need changes in the startup code and
maybe a few other files. So what?
