Your gcc-4.1.1 includes the -fstack-protector feature, but it might
not have the gcc bug fix necessary to make that feature work on the

Whee. A busticated feature - how annoying.

actually it's the kernel that has a differnet ABI than userspace, so it's not entirely gcc
that is to blame.

Do you happen to know the exact PR# for that one?

it's gcc PR 28281
