You have reported this as before.  Exact same problem as before:

    unrecognized option '-Wl,-Bsymbolic'

As before, that is not in gpsd:
    $ fgrep Bsymbol * -r

It is coming from somewhere else in your system, not from gpsd.

You specified the CC and LD yourself, not scons/gpsd:


I see nowhere in your bulid log the ld is used to compile.

Yes, g++ is used to compile C++ code.  Nothing odd there.

Because you did not tell it to use that.  See above.

Well, duh.  You do not use arm ld to link x86 code.
