Patch to allow LTO

Compiling webkitgtk+-2.18.3 locally on an AMD64 machine, it will fail when using --flto=x --fuse-linker-plugin.
Only way to compile it without errors was to disable LTO.

I found a small patch on the gentoo forums here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1052716-start-0.html (credits to user costel78).
Patching the source with this allows me to compile it fine with LTO enabled.

Could you include this in upstream, if it seems worth?
