This defines _FORTIFY_SOURCE in common-defs.h.  This seems like a
sensible safety measure, and also it may help avoid build problems
with -Wunused-result on distros that already define _FORTIFY_SOURCE by
default.

Tested by the buildbot.

I rarely build with optimization enabled, so I wouldn't notice, but at 
least it will help reproduce this kind of problem.

Thanks,
