A terminal transcript with a test case

I found that

clang -O4 -mavx2 *.c

sets AVX2 in the frontend, but not during link-time optimization.  The same may
be true for other flags.  This causes problems with code that tries to detect
whether AVX2 (or possibly other features) are supported, since it will emit
code designed for those features but they will not be present during link-time

The terminal transcript shows the bug in action.  When compiled with -O3, AVX2
instructions are emitted, and when compiled with -O4, they are not.  The
transcript does not show that __AVX2__ is defined in the C file, but in fact it
