My understanding was that at least on some platforms once you need -fPIC for
some libraries you need to make sure they were all compiled with it. That
means it's a pain if any libraries are provided compiled with -fpic because
whenever find one that reaches that threshold they all have to be recompiled.

At least Debian decided long ago to just make everything -fPIC to avoid having
problems later. I don't know what the convention is on other OS's though.
