the performance of the final build, how esle should this work
if there is code added, on i386 it hurts around 10% but on x86_64
at least the overhead of -fPIC -fPIE can be ignored

who cares about 10% performance in case of more security?
well, nobody said "make it default", but Carls attitude was
"why do you not remove it" which is plain wrong

hence if i have a server where users can upload videos which are
rpcoeeded in a cronjob i do not care about some % performance but
i do care if someone exploits my machine with bad input
