Perhaps, I seem to recall some issue with that, but not the specifics.

stable/12 i386 still has GNU ld as /usr/bin/ld and there are a small
number of ports (particularly Free Pascal ones) which fail to build
with lld.

They're tracked as children of PR 214864:
The Lazarus / Free Pascal issue is in PR 233413.

In my opinion we should merge the switch to lld as /usr/bin/ld to
stable/12 now and iterate on fixing the remaining ports fallout, but
would like re/portmgr's assent.
