Re: propolice only in gcc2

:	Few days ago I noticed that website mentions stack protection being 
:part of the system so I decided to check it on one of my test 
:machines... but looks like it is only part of gcc2:
:cc -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector -mcpu=pentiumpro -Wall    -c 
:cc1: error: unrecognized option `-fstack-protector'
:(happened after setting CCVER=gcc3 in make.conf)
:Btw: propolice is very stable on FreeBSD 4.x and so far seems fine on 
:5.x as well.

    Tomaz, you are right, the propolice patch is not being applied to
    GCC3 yet.  It's low priority right now, there are other gcc3isms we
    have to get working first.

    But I would not expect it to be hard to do.  The patch would go into
    a separate contrib directory and the build system would have to create
    local copies of the source files it applies to and then apply it.
