No problem.
The options are documented here: https://mesonbuild.com/Builtin-options.html
and you can query them just the same as with the options added for the
project. Therefore, the only thing that really should change is that in the
meson.build file you check the built-in option and add the fat-lto-objects

Incidentally, I think if the fat-lto-objects flag is not supported you may
want to error out if lto is enabled, as meson will add the lto flag itself
if the option is set.
