Subject: [gentoo-hardened] -fforce-addr in CFLAGS.
Date: Sun, 19 Jun 2005 18:55:42
I just checked make.defaults for the x86 hardened profile and it has 
CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=i386 -pipe -fforce-addr".

Why the -fforce-addr? Does it have any impact on security?

I use hardened on my home server but I don't have -fforce-addr in its 
CFLAGS. Should I add it?
