A previous version of this changeset was focused on disabling FORTIFY_SOURCE only for specific files with optimization disabled. This version entirely disables FORTIFY_SOURCE for all portions of the build. After additional problems; incompatibility of FORTIFY_SOURCE with -O0, lack of consistent support for FORTIFY_SOURCE in some distributions of glibc, etc. this seems like the best course. Should the separate issues with -Od be resolved then FORTIFY_SOURCE could be re-enabled selectively for specific platforms.
