>From Rafael's last Poudriere ports build I think about 98% of the
packages are building with LLD, and some of the missing ones are those
that were skipped (e.g. do not build on amd64, or the upstream
distfiles have gone away). I think some next steps here for FreeBSD

* Ensure we're running the test suites in packages that have them
* Actually install and use the resulting packages for a smoke test
* Address the WIP patches / workarounds currently in use
* Triage the few hundred failures

>From the FreeBSD perspective there's one key LLD task of interest:

* Bring other architecture support to parity with amd64/x86_64. For us
the next one in importance is AArch64/arm64, then i386 and 32-bit arm,
and 32- and 64-bit MIPS, PowerPC, and RISC-V.
