You're asking how to get ld version 2.15.  Cygwin doesn't come with this
version.  Ergo, you can't just download a binary from the cygwin release.

If you're asking where to get this version of binutils, then look at the
binutils web page.  Just typing "binutils" into google should give you a
clue as to where binutils might be found.  Hopefully it is obvious that
binutils isn't a cygwin-specific package.

If you're asking how to *build* binutils, then there is also plenty of
information available on the web for that, also.

It still seems odd that another web site would imply that you needed
another version of binutils other than the one that is provided by the
cygwin release and your inclination was to ask the people who provided
the standard cygwin release where you could find a non-standard cygwin
