Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-346) [Cygwin] gcc -fPIC warnings

[Cygwin] gcc -fPIC warnings

                 Key: STDCXX-346
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build
    Affects Versions: 4.1.3
         Environment: gcc 3.4.4 on Cygwin
            Reporter: Mark Brown

gcc shared library build on Cygwin spits out a warning message about the -fPIC flag on the
command line for every .cpp file:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/mbrown/stdcxx-12d/lib'
generating dependencies for $(TOPDIR)/src/atomic.s
generating dependencies for $(TOPDIR)/src/wctype.cpp
/home/mbrown/stdcxx/src/wctype.cpp:0: warning: -fPIC ignored for target (all code is position

Removing the -fPIC gets rid of the warnings so I'm guessing Cygwin might need the same conditional
as the one for AIX in gcc.config:

# IBM AIX code is always position independent
ifneq ($(OSNAME),AIX)
PICFLAGS        = -fPIC
