I'm guessing linkers are hard, but gold proves that if you keep the
scope small and use modern techniques you can get really good
improvements over gnu ld.  I think the gold author had quite a bit of
linker experience though.

I'd think apple would care about linker performance... I'm even a
little surprised Xcode doesn't have something better than a lightly
hacked gnu ld.
