I simply wanted to be very sure that it works and both variables were
used in the Makefile.  Just following the principle I stated above that
I do not consider plain overriding of such a variable is good style I
enabled adding to both.  Most probably it is enough to feed only one of
these (do not remember by heart which one) with the fortifying options.
I do not mind if you pick one of these if it works afterwards as

Kind regards
