Qt and KDE libs are built with -fPIC, which, afaik, is stronger and incompatible with -fPIE, would it be an option to use -fPIC for gpgme?

I've been reading about -fPIC and -fpic and -fPIE and -fpie and -pie for
years and i confess i've never completely understood the differences or
whether one is "stronger" than another.

gcc says of -fPIE and -fpic "generated position independent code can be
only linked into executables." which makes it seem odd that these
parameters would be passed through to building libraries in the first

I'm going to try a rebuild without the extra hardening flags to see
whether i can make progress on this.

fwiw, i'd still really love some feedback about whether it's ok to take
over the binary packages i'd asked about in the first place.
