GNU ld is part of the binutils distributions (binutils-2.0.tar.Z).
However, you should not need GNU ld; you can use 'collect' instead.
Collect is part of the gcc distribution, and I believe it is used by
default. (This does not apply if you're running Solaris2, which uses a
different mechanism. There might well be bugs in that. GNU ld will not
work under Solaris2.)
[The G++ FAQ says that the SVR4 linker, which Solaris 2 uses, can handle
G++ objects without needing collect. -John]
