When using lld as the linker, configure prints a confusing message.

*** These critical programs are missing or too old: GNU ld

lld>=8 can build glibc with very few patches. lld may be built with a
custom version information (e.g. git commit ID), so a version check is not
useful at all.

But not all versions of lld can be used to build glibc.  Please find a way
to check the working lld version.
