-fPIC became default for all linux 64-bit binaries and packages in order to support PIE (default on Ubuntu 16.10 and hardened Gentoo).

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.
