I do not understand this patch.

The host compiler should be able to link executables
without any additional settings.

So, can you link a hello world program
in your docker?

masahiro@zoe:~$ cat test.c
#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
        printf("helloworld\n");
        return 0;
}
masahiro@zoe:~$ clang test.c


If this fails, your environment is broken.

Just do  -DCLANG_DEFAULT_LINKER='lld'
if you know GNU ld is missing in your docker environment.
