PIE is supported by more than Linux.  Both OpenBSD and Linux support
PIE binaries.  Solaris 11.1 also supports ASLR but appears to handle
it a bit differently, using the sxadm utility.

For now, I've added a test to sudo's configure based on your malloc
test to verify that a trivial PIE binary will work.
