No, I'm just providing a worst case example.

I could do that. But it would require downgrading all my systems
to binaries with SSP. Why don't you test it? You have a NetBSD system
without SSP. You can benchmark "build.sh" for producing safer
binaries and that repeat the build once you have updated. ;-)

What would that demonstrate except that the network is the bottleneck?
