[Dovecot] [Blasphemy] Can I build dovecot with "-fstack-protector"?

I tried building dovecot using :

CPPFLAGS="-fstack-protector" LDFLAGS="-lssp" ./configure

That would result in a proper build, yet the binary would complain
once being run:

dlopen(/usr/local/lib/dovecot/imap/lib10_quota_plugin.so) failed:
/usr/local/lib/dovecot/imap/lib10_quota_plugin.so: undefined symbol: __stack_chk_fail_local
Error: imap dump-capability process returned 89

and the like. So: Is it possible at all? 

And sorry for the blasphemy of daring to ask this in the first place :)
