I doubt lld can do it yet; you need some equivalent of the
--no-dynamic-linker option I added to BFD ld. It should be possible
with clang using binutils/BFD ld. You might also be able to hack it by
using -shared -Bsymbolic and explicitly linking rcrt1.o on the link
command line (essentially doing the same thing you'd do to make an
executable shared library) but there are corner-case things that break
when you try to do it this way. The right approach would be adding
--no-dynamic-linker to lld and teaching clang to pass it when linking
with -static -pie.
