I just built binutils with -fstack-protector-all, and -fno-stack-protector in 
make check, and got 0 errors. New protector patch will be ready tommorrow, 2 
new hunks in an earlier post. I lost 2 errors from gcc's make check also, 
leaving 3 total remaining, which isn't too bad for gcc, and this might get 
better if I do make check with -fno-stack-protector, or track down the 
problems and patch the makefile if it comes down to that.
