Many thanks

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.
