What are these routines and where are they located.

Well, on your system, they probably do not exist, which is probably why they can't be found.

"ld" is the linker.  If you don't have a linker, it probably means you do not have a compiler installed on your system.  You will not be able to compile Erlang from source without a compiler and linker.  You do not mention what OS you are using, so I don't know what you need to download.
