This is no longer a release blocker as --with-lto is not enabled by default by --enable-optimizations since my commits in September.

Regarding --with-lto itself segfaulting... Fixing compiler+linker toolchains is beyond what CPython itself should do.  But the reason the flag remains named "optimizations" is that it is fair for us to include --with-lto or other future build time optimization in known good configurations detected by the autoconf configure.ac in the future if desired.

I do not think there is anything more for us to do here.  We should explicitly _not_ try to add smarts to --with-lto itself as to whether we believe it will build a broken binary or not.
