rABC42ffe93ec2ef: Don't use gold for the Gitian builds
Summary

For some reason, gold will produce a bad executable on linux when
building against the static depends. The build runs fine, is
deterministic, but running bitcoind or bitcoin-qt make them stuck -
they won't return, no error, won't shutdown and need to be killed.
The last debug.log line is:

Using at most 125 automatic connections (1024 file descriptors available)

This needs to be investigated, but for now the gold linker is disabled.

Test Plan

Run the linux Gitian build then launch the bitcoind executable.
