           Produce a position independent executable on targets that support
           it.  For predictable results, you must also specify the same set of
           options used for compilation (-fpie, -fPIE, or model suboptions)
           when you specify this linker option.

Also, it's what QEMU's configure step does to detect whether PIE is
available :-)
