Hi guys,

Thanks to Li-Wen Hsu [1], I now know the new version does not build on 11.4 with :
    /usr/bin/ld: unrecognized option '-plugin'
Which seems due to the '-flto' flag according to this issue :
I've tried the fix mentioned there (adding '-fuse-ld=lld'), but it's not a flag recognized by clang.

Removing '-flto' allows to build kitty but some tests fails.
Does someone knows on how to get around this compiler issue (only for 11x)?
