You didn't state where you downloaded it from, but regardless, tcc
does not distribute binaries - you have to build it yourself.
The source is at: https://repo.or.cz/tinycc.git

If it doesn't work after you compiled it yourself, then you should
report it here at the mailing list together with platform details,
exact error messages, logs, and anything else you think is relevant.

Or, if your distribution provides it - you should contact them.

There is a sort of official win32 binary here:

But it sounds like you use linux, so it's not relevant to you.

This is my personal opinion only, but I don't see a relation
between the fact the the linker is built-in to adding a link
to an external linker.

If you think the internal linker is broken, then you should
report it here at the list, or, even better - suggest a fix.

Additionally, it doesn't sound like your linker is ready at
this point in time, and there are enough linkers out there
which people can use already if they prefer.

Bottom line, personally I don't see a reason to link to it.
