For what it's worth, I've manually configured my Exherbo boxes to use
this setting for several years via /etc/paludis/bashrc, and have had a
very small number of packages that I had to blacklist (I wouldn't be
surprised if most of them have already been fixed now, too).

It looks like we already have a filter-ldflags helper in flag-o-
matic.exlib to use in any packages where build system modifications to
fix as-needed support are unreasonably complex.
