* Enable -fstack-protector for the new distros
for every package
Gentoo is supporting -fstack-protector for quite some time now and you
might want to have a look at their ebuild database for some packages
that have little propblems with that compiler flag.
Fedora should have patches as well. If people using the buildservice
like to test this, it would be fine.
If you're interested, i'll aggregate some bugzilla entries from
bugs.g.o for this...
A quick grep over portage brought these packages all have some special
handling for -fstack-protector (or simply disable it):
sane-backends (seems only amd64)
grub (seems to be build issue)
Thanks for that list, let's see what we figure out in our build,
