No. because its just a hack.  Literally, I go edit the Makefiles and add 
a -fno-stack-protector.  I have to add it in 3 places.
The mkelfimage, and twice in linuxbios since the CAR code uses a 
different set of CFLAGS.

Jordan:  I'll did into this a bit deeper, if want me to, but you will 
need to give me the 411 on what its supposed to be doing.

Yeah tried all that.  I played with some settings as well.  Busybox was 
still selected but if I de-select then I get:

rm -f 
make[1]: Leaving directory 
cp: target 
is not a directory
make: *** 
Error 1

Is anyone else here on the list running gutsy?
