	It sounds like while gcc supports the -fPIE and -pie options they
	don't actually work properly.  The simple solution is to add
	--disable-pie to the configure args for ia64 in the port's Makefile.
	I'll also add a configure check to disable PIE on FreeBSD/ia64 in
	the next sudo release.

	However, you might want to involve the FreeBSD/ia64 folks and see
	if they can fix the underlying issues that prevent PIE from working

ok, will do, thanks
