Presumably it's possible to disable the FORTIFY_SOURCE extensions at
compile time with a new gcc flag, right? ie, if you don't want a
dependency on such a new glibc release you should be able to avoid it.

If this isn't currently the case I'm willing to do a patch for this, as
being able to build on new, run on old is important to the autopackage
project (yes, it is possible ...)
