My paranoia would be happier with a check that doesn't get confused by
a version of -fstack-protector that emits some symbol other than
__stack_chk_fail. In fact, it looks like my check would be confused
by an i386 or powerpc GCC that set -fPIC by default (because then it
would call __stack_chk_fail_local). Such confusion today is a hard
error. Your change would turn that error into a false negative, which
