Better dietlibc in Hardy

after reading Klaus Trainer's email in ubuntu-motu mailing list , I
started to look at the bug  given. I realized this was not due to
util-vserver but to dietlibc instead.
dietlibc is compiled without stack protector (-fno-stack-protector flag
and WANT_SSP option disabled in source code) and this leads to weird
behaviours in packages compiled with dietlibc support, see  and 
for concrete examples, but I think many packages are affected.
I prepared a spec  which tries to focus the issue and to provide a
candidate solution for review. I also uploaded involved packages  on
my PPA  for testing purposes.
If feedbacks are positive, I would like to upload a fixed version of
dietlibc and, once it will be built on all architectures, manage
rebuilds of the packages which build-depend on it.
Please, let me know your opinion about the issue.
Thank you and regards,
