Searching feedback about gold, I found this answer on
- gold doesn't search in /usr/local/lib
-  gold doesn't assume libs like pthread or rt, had to add them by hand
-  it is faster and needs less memory (the later is important on big C++
projects with a lot of boost etc.

Since this answer is dated from 2010, I searched about "pthread" (which is
used on LO) + gold and found there's still a bug about it:

Even if it's a very quick search, it seems that if gold is used for LO,
it'll need extensive tests to avoid a crowd of crash bugs.
