OK, this looks good to me.  Just to make sure everyone's on the
same page, what I propose to do is simplify all our platform-specific
Makefiles that use either -fpic or -fPIC to use -fPIC unconditionally.
This affects the netbsd, linux, and openbsd ports.  Looks like we should
also change the example link commands in dfunc.sgml.

Next question: should we back-patch this change, or just do it in HEAD?
