It's not the same, but it should look for it anyways.

Try this to see what's going on:
ld --verbose -lc

<cut a lot of stuff>
attempt to open /usr/lib/ succeeded

attempt to open /lib/ succeeded
attempt to open /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a succeeded
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; not setting start address
