I kinda like the idea of -fstack-protector including libssp.spec,
and having that define something for inclusion into LINK_COMMAND_SPEC.

I don't see this is necessary.  libssp_nonshared.a only ever 
references libssp.a, so there's no reason for anything other
than "-lssp_nonshared -lssp".

That seems like an ok idea.  It'll require more thought in how
to pull in -lssp correctly, wrt the user command-line options.

This patch looks ok.
