-debugger-tune=gdb compilation fail

I’ve recently started running into problems with a port that passes option “-plugin-opt=-debugger-tune=gdb” to the linker which cause compilation to fail, as you can see from this error below:

I saw this issue that was abandoned.

Has this issue moved forward, is there any ways to get around this issue when linking?
