Why not just autoconf?

Check for the presence of __stack_smash_handler() in libc… or am I missing
something important here?

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-

detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
