This looks like it has something to do with the gcc built-in stack
protector.  Possibly Debian doesn't have this in their gcc; I'm not
sure.  You can try to work around it by passing
CFLAGS="-fno-stack-protector" to ./configure, which makes it less
secure, but might get it to compile for you.  Better would be to find
out if Debian has the stack protector, and how to enable it properly.
