This isn’t a bad idea, but it modifies the behaviour in the same way
musl-clang does, except the other way around: it will not have clang
invoke ld if only -l is supplied by the user and no object paths are,
which is what normally should happen.

I’m pretty sure I’ve devised a fix that doesn’t modify behaviour and
makes ld.musl-clang a bit cleaner as a side-effect - I’ll post an updated
patch after a bit of testing.
