If -fPIE is the default will -fPIC override it?
It will also default to tell the linker to use -pie, but then
don't do it when you want to create a shared library?

be used for you want different things:
- shared library: -fPIC
- executable: -fPIC or -fPIE both work, but prefer -fPIE
- static library: Same as executables
For static libraries we now have a policy to not use -fPIC,
should that then get replaced by using -fPIE?
