We have now completed the rebuild, and the packages FTBFSing with this
new build flag are these:
 - afl #828178
 - libblocksruntime #832015
 - libclc # 832014
 - ncl #832011
 - clustalx #832013
 - clonalframe #832012

The first 3 are due to clan 3.7 not supporting the build flag, so it's
either clang being fixed (#819185) , or packages workarounding it.

I think the failing packages are nothing particularly interesting, and
it's very easy to fix, so if no concerns arise in the next very few
days, I'm going to open a bug to dpkg to have the build flag turned on
by default.
