You can't modify the mode of symbolic links on Linux. Thus, lchmod is a useless function. libc may, however, define a lchmod stub that always returns an error. autoconf has a check that detects the dummy stub for glibc, but it detects lchmod as working on musl. I propose we simply always disable lchmod if the target system is Linux.
