Spent some more time on this.  It turns out sudo tries to add RELRO
related flags on its own[1] which is independent of the general RELRO
handling provided by pkgsrc.  So I guess my hacky patch for sudo may
be the way to go in this case as it is specifically needed for mips*
ports because its default stack size is insufficient.  A more
full-fledged fix may involve patching GCC to increase default stack
size for affected archs but that's beyond my understanding.
