I don't have a /bin/ld.  Did you mean /usr/bin/ld?

I have spent only a fw minutes on this, but it appears that MKBFD may be
set to NO, which means that this line from distrib/sets/lists/base/mi:

./usr/bin/ld                                 base-util-bin           bfd

is ignored by some things that parse the lists.

How will moving things around fix the bug?
