Sadly, that won’t work for clang, to the best of my knowledge.
Quickly tested on a macOS machine, but I think it’s the same anywhere:

~ » clang -rtlib=compiler-rt -print-libgcc-file-name
~ » clang -lclang_rt.builtins-x86_64
ld: library not found for -lclang_rt.builtins-x86_64
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

I’m fairly sure -lcompiler_rt used to work at some point, but it seems
they stripped support, which makes sense given that compiler-rt is
actually multiple things now, and this would refer to the builtins part
of it.
