That causes it to fail just as early with a different message.  I'll
try with 4.4 and get back to the list on results, thanks.

Yes, I see -fno-stack-protector on the gcc calls, for example:
GENDEP_TARGET=list_alloc.s.o GENDEP_BINARY=cc1    gcc -m32 -c
-DL4SYS_USE_UTCB_WRAP=1         -DSYSTEM_x86_core2_l4f -DARCH_x86
-I/home/tommd/dev/L4/L4Re/build/include   -nostdinc
-I/usr/lib/gcc/i686-redhat-linux/4.4.4/include-fixed       -g -O2
-fno-strict-aliasing  -march=core2 -Wextra -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations  -fno-common -std=gnu99
-fno-stack-protector -fPIC -U__PIC__ -D__PIC__=1
/home/tommd/dev/L4/L4Re/src/l4/pkg/l4util/lib/src/list_alloc.c -o
