Default Bug#552688: This seems a bit stupid

IMHO this is a bit silly you are denying users of debian security
features found elsewhere (at least found elsewhere in their
packages...). The point is to make the compiler hardened by default
not only packages compiled and packaged for debian.

Please see http://wiki.debian.org/Hardening and please do reconsider.
Given the (actual)patches are already in the source package for 4.4
and 4.5 (gcc) I don't see what your complaint is ?
Why carry something you won't maintain ... this doesn't make sense to me.

reassign 552688 dpkg-dev
thanks

[reassigning to dpkg-dev, if there is no consensus to enable these,
the bug should be reassigned to general]

the point of injection is wrong. dpkg-buildflags supports setting defaults for
compiler and linker flags. If some flags are missing, add them. If packages are
not honouring these flags, fix them.
