Note that the comments should be '...needs a toolchain...' (with 'a')

I wonder what to do here though. We have deliberately chosen the
toolchain keywords to be short so that the entire line can fit within
a 80-char terminal. 'Stack smashing protection' is pretty long in that
Not sure if there will be other packages that depend on this option,
but what about we name it just 'SSP' (which also is how it's named in
the toolchain menu). We should probably also update the manual with
this new 'toolchain option' that can have a comment.
