This serie activates flags that are usually common for Debian/Gentoo
hardening builds.

I'm not sure if they should be activated all the time, or just in
debug|release builds. Or only without optimizations...

And unfortunately stack-protector will probably not work on Mingw...

[PATCH 1/3] configure: use stack-protector-strong in optimized mode
[PATCH 2/3] configure: activate RELRO when linking for ELF hardening
[PATCH 3/3] configure: use -pie -fPIE for Position Independent
