Thank you very much for your patch. I'll apply it after the end of
pkgsrc freeze.

Well... ryoon@, can you remember why you patched lang/gcc46 so that
flag_stack_protect gets initialized with -1 not 0? -fstack-protector
will be effectively enabled by default then, and this is causing a
bootstrapping problem on platforms whose libc does not natively
provide functions for ssp. (I'm CC-ing him.)
