Sorry for being silent, I have too many other tasks recently :(

The build process succeeded with this change (and minor %file changes):

    libc_cv_ssp=no \
    ../configure \

But after rpms installation I have weird errors like this:

    # su - build
    su: Module is unknown

I thought it is an ABI compatibility issue and tried to rebuild SimplePAMApps:

    $ make PACKAGE=SimplePAMApps

    gcc -c -o login_indep.o  -D_GNU_SOURCE -Wall -W -pipe -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -Wl,
    -z,relro -Wl,-z,now -Wall login_indep.c
    In file included from login_indep.c:2:0:
    /usr/include/string.h:548:5: error: unknown type name '__locale_t'
    /usr/include/string.h:552:18: error: unknown type name '__locale_t'

I know source neither of __locale_t error (might be a weird include
files dependency) nor su error.  I'll post about all future major
progress/failures on the list.
