I sent another patch to harden this a bit. I tested it with -ffoobar
and -lfoobar and both were correctly detected. If this still doesn't
catch your missing libssp support, I'm lost..

As a side note, I really think there's something wrong on your setup.
gcc shouldn't support -fstack-protector if your binutils (including
gnu-ld) are compiled without libssp support. Is there any reason you
do that? A lot of other applications (including systemd) fail to
compile on such setups as far as I see. Hmm..
