"-fPIE must only be used when compiling an object which will not be
linked into a shared object " i.e. it doesn't work by passing
CFLAGS/LDFLAGS alone.

"(it's an optional feature since PIE binaries confuse some debuggers so
you don't necessarily want it on-by-default even if the toolchain
supports the flags)"

does that not answer your questions?
