absolutely correct for the Unix versions of V4. The Bootlinker is/was a 
program - a modified  linking loader - combining the modules of the 
"inner core"
into a memory image, which could be loaded by a small C program (which also
provided the interface to the basic libraries).

See subdirectories of 

The Plugin-Version under Windows of later System 3 had a PELinker instead,
which directly created Windows executables.
