This is a known bug (PR bootstrap/24382,
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=24382). You need to
specify a path for ld by configuring with:

${srcdir}/configure --with-ld=/path/to/ld

As an example, I usually build gcc/gfortran with:

../gcc/configure --prefix=/mingw --enable-languages=c,fortran
--with-gmp=$HOME/local --disable-nls --with-ld=/mingw/bin/ld
--with-as=/mingw/bin/as --disable-werror --enable-bootstrap

I don't know of any attempt to fix this bug, maybe Paolo made some
progress since his comment in the PR :)

I scanned the host/target specific installation notes on gcc.gnu.org,
but found to my surprise that there is no mention of i386-mingw32
there. I guess something this could be noted there.
