SSP support has been added to ports with WITH_SSP for i386 and amd64
on FreeBSD 10, and amd64 on earlier versions.
SSP_UNSAFE is added to disable in a port if it fails to build, but
this should only be used in rare circumstances such as kernel modules.
Otherwise, the port may just be failing due to lack of respecting
On FreeBSD 10, this uses an ldscript in /usr/lib/libc.so to pull in
libssp_nonshared.a to address issues linking on i386 .
On earlier FreeBSD versions the WITH_SSP knob will add -lssp_nonshared
to LDFLAGS on i386. This is not needed on amd64. However, several hundred
ports do not currently respect LDFLAGS, so this support is disabled currently
as it causes build failures if a dependency is looking for the stack_chk(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )
