When compiling glibc-2.33-5 with extra-x86_64-build and !lto appended to options array, this error occured:

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.33-5
* config and/or log files etc. see problem description
* link to upstream bug report, if any

According to my investigation, the fatal error here is caused by wrong CFLAGS. Before configuration, CPPFLAGS is trimmed by:


However, CFLAGS left unchanged. Adding a line to trim the _FORTIFY_SOURCE from CFLAGS can fix the issue:


Note that we can't simply remove -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE because this will result in -Wp, (followed by a space) which causes gcc failure during configuration:

cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile

When more preprocessing -D(s) are added to the default CFLAGS, the -Wp, should not be trimmed.

Steps to reproduce:

1. asp checkout glibc
2. append !lto to options in PKGBUILD
3. extra-x86_64-build
This task depends upon
