Following up on my own post:

The 4.5.x fortify and stack-protector patches apply to gcc-4.6.2
cleanly, but the fpie patch needed some adaptation.

The resulting compiler mostly works (I've been able to compile most
of the common libraries for a temporary system), except that it 
doesn't compile a working vim unless optimization is turned off, 
and it doesn't compile the kernel (2.6.32 + grsec).  Unfortunately 
I haven't been able to determine what the problem is in either case.
