First off, i wrote this thread the first time and had it it gcc, and i went back to the main page and it wasnt there, so if it happens to turn up i apologize, but im not seeing it. So with that aside, I was checking around for linux security guides and I came across this site
This site is nothing short of badass I think, aside from and this is the only site I have seen with indepth step by step config on just about any piece of software/hardware. Enjoy!!
