cmd/link/internal/ld: dedup shared libraries on openbsd

When linking internally on OpenBSD, dedup libraries treating versioned
and unversioned libraries as equivalents. Versioned libraries are preferred
and are retained over unversioned libraries.

This avoids the situation where the use of cgo results in a DT_NEEDED for a
versioned library (for example,, while a dynamic import
specifies an unversioned library (for example, Without deduplication
this would result in two DT_NEEDED entries, causing a failure when
attempts to load the Go binrary.
