[cfe-dev] Forcing default target, linker, includes

There's CLANG_DEFAULT_LINKER to set the default linker. There are other
similar flags

One issue I ran into is these settings are currently global and not
per-target. This is an issue e.g. on macOS where using
CLANG_DEFAULT_LINKER=lld makes even the Darwin target use lld which is a
problem. This is something we should address by either this setting a
per-target or change Darwin to always use system linker and ignore that

There isn't CLANG_DEFAULT_SYSROOT right now. We could probably introduce it
but it'd have the same problem as CLANG_DEFAULT_LINKER where a single
option isn't going to work for all targets.

One thing we wanted to do for Fuchsia is implementing support for finding
sysroot in tooldir/sys-root/<target> which is already supported by GCC.
