--- Comment #8 from Darxus <darxus at chaosreigns.com> ---
In case anybody else ends up wanting to build commits from the several years
where -flto was enabled, between the commits mentioned above, this has worked
well for me:

sed -i -e 's/-flto//g' build/configure.ac.warnings

Mailing list thread where this came up, trying to find where tests started
failing:  https://lists.cairographics.org/archives/cairo/2016-July/027613.html

The error that led me to this bug, and this solution, was:
undefined reference to `cairo_boilerplate_xmalloc'

Commits between which I expect this error to show up:

    gcc-4.5 warnings and optimisation flags.

With the above sed command I've been able to build commits back to at least:
