That seems like serious overkill. Gambas can't build with the
FORTIFY_SOURCE flag, so I remove it like this:

# Gambas can't deal with -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2
CFLAGS=`echo $RPM_OPT_FLAGS | sed -e 's/-Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2//g'

Thats it. No extra shell scripts necessary. :)

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always
that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence
and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We
will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in
our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended
from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to
associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
