It's at /usr/bin/ld since Nevada, and stays so on Illumos and similar flavors

Any Sun ld won't support visibility. Most affected software configures will 
only check for the version of GCC and seeing 4.x something they try to enable 
visibility support, which will fail for sure. So visibility needs to be checked 
for on a package level and patched away.

I don't think pkgsrc currently has any variable to report the flavor of ld 
available/used. Maybe something like GNU_LINKER would make things a bit easier?
