Turning on stack protection by default


I'm using NetBSD/amd64 and NetBSD/i386 with stack smash protection enabled
ever since the feature was introduced into NetBSD. I've just fixed a bug
in "mdnsd" which was caught by SSP.(*)

Considering that this feature helps finding bugs and increases system
security I would like to suggest to turn in on by default on these
two NetBSD ports.

What do other people think about this?

        Kind regards
