This would be just a crude hack...

on some platforms you will need fPIC... it doesn't matter if you
crosscompile for them or not.

on others you don't need it, don't want it (or cannot use it?).

Does someone know the size difference between fPIC executables and
"normal ones"?

And does OpenWRT support address layout randomization?
