    Fix lld detection if both gold and lld are found · 2974f81f
    Ben Gamari authored
    If you have ld.gold and ld.lld, then ld.gold will be selected by the
    detection logic. This patch prioritizes lld by changing the order. The
    rationale for checking lld first is that it's (right now) not part of,
    say, a default Linux distro installation and if it's available, it's
    very likely that it was installed explicitly and should be seen as a
    sign of preference. On FreeBSD LLVM is the (default) base toolchain and
    the changed order makes sense there as well, since ld.gold can be
    available in /usr/local via ports/pkg. I don't have access to macOS and
    can't say anything about their LLVM toolchain.
    
    At some point we could add a check for LD=ld.lld or LD=ld.gold as an
    optional override to explicitly select a linker.
    
    Since I cannot really remove gcc on Linux, this was the only way to
    configure GHC to use ld.lld.
