That in conjunction with the -O0 warning seems to me to be insane.
OK, can you write a patch that simply removes the -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SRC
option from all testsuite builds? I don't see any reason to make the
gold testsuite more complex by sometimes using CXXCOMPILE and
sometimes using CXXCOMPILE_NFORTIFY. The use of _FORTIFY_SRC is
irrelevant for the gold testsuite.
Also needs a comment explaining why this is necessary.
