GCC does not print the correct linker when -fuse-ld=lld is used with
the -print-prog-name=ld:

  $ gcc -v 2>&1 | tail -n 1
  gcc version 11.2.0 (Ubuntu 11.2.0-7ubuntu2)
  $ gcc
  ld

This is different than for gold:

  $ gcc -fuse-ld=gold -print-prog-name=ld
  ld.gold

Using ld.lld as the static linker name prints the expected result.

This is only required when -fuse-ld=lld is used, if lld is used as
the 'ld' programs (through a symlink) LIBC_PROG_BINUTILS works
as expected.

Checked on x86_64-linux-gnu.

I think it may be debatable whether -fuse-ld={bfd,gold,lld} should
affect -print-prog-name=ld output.

   # Should -fuse-ld= do anything with this?
   % aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc -print-prog-name=../bin/ld
   /usr/lib/gcc-cross/aarch64-linux-gnu/10/../../../../aarch64-linux-gnu/bin/../bin/ld

gcc/gcc.c has OPT_fuse_ld_bfd but not OPT_fuse_ld_lld, which may explain
the behavior difference.

Clang does not have the GCC -fuse-ld= --print-prog-name=ld behavior.

Perhaps hard code -fuse-ld=bfd and -fuse-ld=gold as well?

I think gcc -print-prog-name=ld.bfd is more robust than
gcc -print-prog-name=ld -fuse-ld=bfd.

I think it would make sense, it allows to query the underlying static
linker used by the driver.  What does not make much sense to me is
allow arbitrary paths as input.

I think this is was oversight from lld gcc support and any case we need
to handle gcc that does not print the correct linker used if we want to
allow a way to set a non-default linker.

This option is used solely to support --with-binutils.  Maybe we should
just remove it, since it is just simplify the use of a different binutils
and for clang it does not make sense (since it has different the integrated
assembly and different tool names).

It outlines the missing gcc support, since with ld.bfd and ld.gold
does work with gcc.

I will maybe send a patch to remove LIBC_PROG_BINUTILS.
