I would like to see some more analysis of what the underlying reasons  
for failure are.

-fpie works fine with darwin 9 and darwin 10 libjava [XCode 3.1.4 and  
3.2.5 respectively, bootstrap w/4.2.1]
(modulo suppressing it when building test-suite  .dylibs *** - which  
is a testsuite options handling issue - not a fundamental problem).


make -k check-target-libjava "RUNTESTFLAGS=--target_board=unix/-fpie\{- 
m32,-m64\} "

passes without regression (re the no pie case) given that pie is  
suppressed for dylibs.


So is your proposed patch a work-around for (as yet unreleased)   
darwin 11 tool-chain bugs or ... ?


kludge to suppress pie for for dylibs (use in place of the darwin9.h  
hunk from the attachment on PR49371).
