Indeed it is due to lld 10.0.0.  For the emulators/qemu-sbruno port,
which is the master for the qemu-user-static port, I have submitted a

Fixes for other qemu ports:

https://bugs.freebsd.org/244768 (qemu-cheri)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244769 (qemu-devel)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244770 (qemu)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244771 (qemu-powernv)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244773 (qemu30)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244774 (qemu31)
https://bugs.freebsd.org/244775 (qemu40)
