The online manual for 'ld' says

| -g
|     Ignored. Provided for compatibility with other tools.

but that's dated 1994.

Using the last full MinGW release:

  -g                          Ignored

IIRC, borland requires both a '-v' compiler flag and a '/v'
linker flag to build a debuggable application.
