-fPIC became default for all linux 64-bit binaries and
packages in order to support PIE (default on Ubuntu 16.10 and
AFAIK, the only way to disable PIC for a specific build is to
use a local dmd.conf that doesn't have -fPIC.
Just a heads up because this might trip up (a small minority
of) users (with weird use cases).
Yes correct there is no override, but there shouldn't be any
use-cases. If people are statically building whole applications
(with libc) for gains in the per mile region, they will have a
custom link step already.
