In the Debian/Ubuntu packages (and this is general to packaging), we are:
* relying on the build system of the application itself
* adding some flags like "-g -O2" and the fortify options https://wiki.debian.org/Hardening

For the linker, for the LLVM toolchain, it depends if the version of binutils in the distro has it or not (at least 2.23.1-1~exp3).
Here, for the Debian & Ubuntu packages, I am using binutils gold but not sure the LTO option is set to the llvm build system?!

However, happy to try that (I think this should be part of the build system, at least for LTO).
