FORTIFY kills ar

The "ar" from binutils-2.16.x suffers from memory leaks.

Building the RTEMS binutils rpms on systems with FORTIFY enabled (e.g. FC4) trigger this and result into unusable "ar".

Linux systems with FORTIFY enabled, binutils <= 2.16.1, Fedora Core >= 4

Fixed upstream. binutils >= 2.17 don't suffer from this issue.
