Log Message:
	Restrict default creation of PIE binaries (-fPIE and -pie) to Linux.
	OpenBSD also supports PIE but enables it by default so we don't
	need to do anything.  This fixes problems on systems with a version
	of GNU ld that accepts -pie but where the run-time linker doesn't
	actually support PIE.  Also verify that a trivial PIE binary works
	unless PIE is explicitly enabled.
