I can reproduce it by setting LD=ld. I think I see what's happening:
the test is invoking $CC as a linker instead of $LD and they behave
differently in this case.
configure:6352: checking if ld supports link flag -Wl,-z,retpolineplt
configure:6375: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -pipe -Wall -Wpointer-arith
-Wuninitialized -Wsign-compare -Wformat-security
-Wsizeof-pointer-memaccess -Wno-pointer-sign -Wno-unused-result
-fno-strict-aliasing -mfunction-return=thunk -mindirect-branch=thunk
-Werror -Wl,-z,retpolineplt conftest.c >&5
/usr/bin/ld: warning: -z retpolineplt ignored.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
