Subject[PATCH] perf tools: Test if programs with -fstack-prtoector-all link
The -fstack-protector may need additional library to be present in
system thus it is not enough to test if compiler compiles program
but also whether linker links it thus "-c" flag has been removed

As I was corss-compiling perf compiler handled -fstack-protector-all
nicely and so the flag has been added to CFLAGS however test for
presence of libelf failed because linker could not link with ssp_nonshared
library. Removing "-c" from the -fstack-protector-all test code fixed
problem by forcing linking and thus testing if not only compiler but the
whole toolchain supported stack protector.
