Currently, ld.gold is missing on at least ppc64, ppc64le, s390x:
$ grep -Fc ld.gold binutils-2*.rpm
I do not know the support status of ppc and s390, but we should enable the gold linker on all primary architectures.
Fixed in binutils-2.27-40.base.el7
Verified with binutils-2.27-41.base.el7 - ld.gold is present, no failed test case reported by gold binutils' upstream test suite.
