Umm, you are trying to build LFS, and you don't know what ld is?
The linker used in the gcc tool chain is ld. Do you know what
a linker is? If not, then perhaps LFS is really not the best choice
for you.

Do both as and ld exist, and if so, what versions are they?

$ ld -v

$ as -v

Try this as well...

$ set | grep PATH

Also, what does which say?

Try an ls -l on the as and ld listed by which, or in your PATH

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
