Re: emulators/qemu fails to build on NetBSD 4.0 (with workaround)

I see in its (hand-written) configure script:

# Check for stack protector
cat > $TMPC <<EOF
extern int foo;
if "$cc" -o $TMPE $TMPC -fno-stack-protector 2> /dev/null ; then

Due to the lack of a "-c" option to the compiler it will try to link,
and fail. The script interprets this as stack_protector_present="yes",
while in fact the option is not understood at all. Later on, it will try
to use the option.

Are the then-part and else-part indeed swapped from what they should
be, or is it too late in the night so that I can't think any more?
