Yep same, there should be no need to use GNU ld on SunOS-based

While that's true, it should not affect regular operation.  The GCC
packages are configured to select the native ld and the presence of
GNU ld should not mean that it is used.

Usually if you find a hard-coded call to ld in a package it should be
replaced with the compiler front-end anyway so that the correct flags
can be applied.
