 Replying to [comment:17 saagarjha]:

 Oh. Huh.

 clang-11 is the only portfile that was updated by the [comment:13 above
 commit] and clang-11 and clang-11-bootstrap are the only ports that
 contain the line:
         ln -s ${workpath}/llvm-project/lld
 So I assumed that it had not been added to other ports. However I see now
 that clang-12 and later do it a different way with:

 According to a
 search on the ports web site], clang-12 and later all have files whose
 paths begin with /opt/local/bin/lld (but clang-11 does not).

 You're right that lld is not mentioned in any of the clang ports' select
 files. It could be added, at the expense of having to rebuild all clang
 ports on all OS versions, which is time-consuming.
