We already indicate our intentions to use ld.bfd by
specifying it in configure using --with-ld which works
ok unless here where we manually create symlinks to
binutils-cross components, when we use ld-is-gold feature
default ld points to gold and this symlinking has to be
aware of the fact that we configured binutils and gcc-cross to use
gold as default ld but gcc-cross-initial uses BFD ld

This would be visible when using gold and rebuilding
