That's possible. The nostackprotect change happens to enable
nostackprotect with crosscompilers (without it, the crosscompiler test
overwrites CC)

In the code, first -fno-stack-protector gets added, then it's pushed
into the wrapper script (also necessary for "gcc -m32"), as scan-build
doesn't like CC="gcc -arguments". That really looks like it's doing the
right thing.
I tried a build right now, and it seems to work. (but on that system,
nostackprotect doesn't fix otherwise broken builds)

I chose scan-build because that's what the tool is called. On the other
hand, --nostackprotect strips the "-", too.
I honestly have no opinion on that :-)

Thanks. I'll wait a bit for more opinions on the parameter name, but as
the short name stays stable, changing the long version later-on
shouldn't be too much of a problem.
