[staging] python3: Fix clang / llvm build with optimizations #103715

Motivation for this change

When building python3 with clang, the build errors out because optimizations are enabled (disabled by default on Darwin for I assume the very same reason) because python requires llvm-profdata to be available to build in that case.

I am not sure if the way I figure out how to choose the matching version of llvm to the clang version provided by the stdenv is ideal. Please feel free to suggest a better approach.

@NixOS/darwin-maintainers maybe you could verify if this also applies to Darwin builds? Then we can get rid of the enableOptimizations flag I think.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits
