This is caused by the xorg-2.eclass and affects seemingly all packages that use
that eclass (It has a conditional that checks if hardened is used and filters
some flags).
Does anyone know why this is the case? Is it a legacy issue or are there valid
reasons why Xorg is build with only partial RELRO?
I've tried to build it on my systems with full RELRO (by adding -z,relro,-z,now
to the filter inside the eclass) and it works without issues so far.
