Can the GCC toolchain be built AS a PIE?

+2 votes
93 views

Advance apologies if this question has been asked previously, Google searches only turned up results for using -fPIE/-fPIC.

Is it possible to build GCC as a PIE? If so, would it be a matter of including the -FPIC/-FPIE params for CFLAGS and/or LDFLAGS and running configure && make, or are there issues I should be aware of (for example, should I set parameters for cross-building)?

Background: Android 5.0 requires PIE, which means that upgrading will break my existing native build environment...unless I can build a PIE GCC first, then re-build all of my utilities with it.

is it possible to add a private extension to the core language (C/C++) by writing a gcc plugin?

The extension in mind is something like this

[variable_definitions;]

Later I want this be possible also inside statement headers, for example

for ([double d = 1.0; bool f = false;] size_t i = 0; i < vec.size(); ++i)
 ...

The scope of the so-defined variables shall be the same scope they are in, ie. in the for-loop case just the scope of the for-loop itself, much like the case with i.
