the same hint is still included in the manpage of "gcc (GCC) 4.0.2"
If supported for the target machine, emit position-independent
code, suitable for dynamic linking and avoiding any limit on the
size of the global offset table. This option makes a difference on
the m68k, PowerPC and SPARC.
Position-independent code requires special support, and therefore
works only on certain machines.
i my idea is likewise that it doesn't care on Intel systems.
