So everything in Rawhide must be compiled with -fPIC?

I'm still no closer to being able to fix the problem.

I have to add -fPIE (or is that -pie or -fpie or -DPIE) to every
executable?  Upstream?  Will that break on some platforms/architectures?

And indeed what is the difference between -fPIE / -pie / -fpie /
-fPIC / -fpic / -DPIC / etc?  Where is this stuff documented?
