Feature request: enable stack smashing protector for Arch Linux packages

I've just created a feature request in Arch Linux Bugtracker to enable stack-smashing protector for Arch Linux packages. Stack smashing protector (SSP for short, aka ProPolice) is a GCC extension for protecting applications from stack-smashing attacks. It is available in stock GCC via -fstack-protector and -fstack-protector-all compile flags.

If you care about Arch Linux security, plase speak up and vote for this feature request!
