configure: Use LDFLAGS when trying linkers

Rodrigo Mesquita requested to merge wip/romes/24565 into master

A user may configure LDFLAGS but not LD. When choosing a linker, we will prefer ldd, then, then ld.bfd -- however, we have to check for a working linker. If either of these fail, we try the next in line.

However, we were not considering the $LDFLAGS when checking if these linkers worked. So we would pick a linker that does not support the current $LDFLAGS and fail further down the line when we used that linker with those flags.

Fixes #24565 (closed), where LDFLAGS=-Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs is not supported by but that was being picked still.
