[swift-build-dev] SwiftPM bootstrap and gold linker

I am using a newer version of binutils (2.26) which is leading me to run
into a known issue with the linker. The suggested work around is to use
the gold linker* [1] [2].

However when I run the gold linker with the SwiftPM bootstrap it doesn't
seem to honor the gold linker request. Is this a feature or a bug?
