Updated the ld64 port with this behavior.

I'm holding off on doing cctools like that since I'm hoping we can just make it the latest version everywhere.

We should maybe have ld64-97, ld64-127, ld64-136, and ld64-latest subports and have the ld64 port depends_run on the subport that should be selected.  The ld64 subports should all be simultaneously-installable and $prefix/bin/ld should be a symlink to the "preferred" one.
