I don't think this is how it's _supposed_ to be.  Are we talking about
netbsd-4 or -current?  If the former, xtos' patch to pull up the USE_SSP/
USE_FORT support might be broken.  If the latter, there is probably a
mistake in my changes that reorganized the USE_SSP support and added

USE_FORT just builds userland code with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2, which is
not presently useful for the kernel.
