It happens with both /usr/bin/ld and /usr/local/bin/ld.  I remove the
binutils port and still had the issue.  I tried reverting recent changes
to elftoolchain/libelftc, the resulting tree would not build.
For the record,

% /usr/bin/ld -v
GNU ld 2.17.50
% /usr/local/bin/ld -v
GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.25.1 

I forgot to note that the problem does not occur for amd64 FreeBSD at
r299122.  Unfortunately, I won't have time until the end of the week
to try to bisect the src tree (which is going to be a monumental pain
with keeping everything in sync). 
As a workaround, I have added -Wl,--allow-multiple-definition to the
compiler options for gfortran48.
