[New-bugs-announce] [issue26689] Add `has_flag` method to `distutils.CCompiler`

New submission from Sylvain Corlay:

I would be very useful to have a `has_flag` method in `distutils.CCompiler` similar to `has_function`, allowing to check if the compiler supports certain flags.

Cmake has a `CHECK_CXX_COMPILER_FLAG` macro for that purpose, which checks if a simple C++ file compiles with the said flag.
