SSP will result in a slowdown of about 5%, please read this thread
for more details:

After protests from multiple developer because of the performance hit
I've reverted the changes. SSP is now off by default (except for
library and network daemon builds) on all platforms, in particular
for NetBSD/amd64 and NetBSD/i386 kernels.

Unfortunately for rmind@, pooka@, and haad@, until proven otherwise,
it seems more developers are interested in having SSP enabled by
default. Please put it back. No developers are more equal than others.
