I consider people tweeting about Kim DotCom to have the same intelligence as my cheese grater.
Took me ages of fucking around to get bitlbee to compile with full RELRO.
In the end I had to hack the makefile.
At line 182 (the line where it gets linked) I had to add the following:
180 $(OUTFILE): $(objects) $(subdirs) 181 @echo '*' Linking $(OUTFILE) 182 @$(CC) $(objects) $(subdirobjs) *-march=native -O2 -fstack-protector-all -fpic -pipe -Wl,-z,relro,-z,now* -o $(OUTFILE) $(LDFLAGS_BITLBEE) $(LFLAGS) $(EFLAGS)
