Apparently so. Thanks. The problem seems to be only in that routine.
It's obviously somewhat subtle as it doesn't fail on Ubuntu, which
defaults to FORTIFY_SOURCE.
Perhaps defaulting to on is the wrong choice, as I'd guess RH5-ish is
the most likely target for the rpm; alternatively, maybe it could be
disabled in the one place if it's enough of a benefit generally. I
think it could at least benefit from a prominent note in the
instructions to try turning it off in case of such problems.
