It appears that there were no major concerns.  I will follow up #835148
and request PIE by default for the following architectures.

 * amd64
 * arm64
 * armel
 * armhf
 * i386
 * mips
 * mips64el
 * mipsel
 * ppc64el
 * s390x

Should you be a porter for an architecture not listed above and want PIE
by default on your architecture, please follow up on #835148 as well (or
a file a new wishlist bug if #835148 is closed when you do it)

NB: The omission of powerpc was intentional as there were no porters
supporting it during the roll-call.
