You're not stupid, there actually isn't a way to set gold's default
library path using a configure option.
I see that GNU ld does support a --with-lib-path configure option, and I
would not be opposed to supporting it in gold either. The current
default (/lib:/usr/lib, adjusted for any --sysroot option) is set in
General_options::finalize in option.cc.
