I'd like to propose a slight modification this which, in addition, seems to get 
over the
issue (at least on solaris) of c++ shared libraries linking '-nostdlib'.  

This could easily be adapted for other hosts using g++. Note, it is harmless if 
or no spec with fstack-protector* is available.

It appears there was no warm welcome in tossing the '-nostdlib' setup for g++ 
shared libraries 
for solaris, so this seems to be a reasonable workaround.
