`r-rsamtools` statically links `r-rhtslib` and fails to build properly if either of those two packages or R is built with `option(lto)` (i.e., all three need to be built with `!lto`).

Additional info:

r 4.2.0-1
r-rhtslib 1.28.0-1 (AUR)
r-rsamtools 2.12.0-1 (AUR)

Upstream bug report against r-rsamtools:

Steps to reproduce:

A. fails:
1. install `r` from community repository
2. build and install `r-rhtslib` from AUR
3. build `r-rsamtools` from AUR

Last step fails with:

** testing if installed package can be loaded from temporary location
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘Rsamtools’ in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...):
unable to load shared object '/home/christoph/Dokumente/Tools/aur/r-rsamtools/src/00LOCK-Rsamtools/00new/Rsamtools/libs/':

* removing ‘/home/christoph/Dokumente/Tools/aur/r-rsamtools/src/Rsamtools’
* restoring previous ‘/home/christoph/Dokumente/Tools/aur/r-rsamtools/src/Rsamtools’

B. works:
1. Build `r` locally with `options=(!lto)`
2. build and install `r-rhtslib` from AUR
3. build and install `r-rsamtools` from AUR
This task depends upon
