Using `-pgmc` drops the `-no-pie` flag causing link failure
-pgmc drops the
-no-pie flag causing link failure
Steps to reproduce
$ echo 'main = putStrLn "Hello world!"' > test.hs $ ghc --make -pgmc gcc test.hs [1 of 1] Compiling Main ( test.hs, test.o ) Linking test ... /usr/bin/ld: test.o: relocation R_X86_64_32S against symbol `stg_bh_upd_frame_info' can not be used when making a PIE object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/bin/ld: /tmp/ghc58_0/ghc_5.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against symbol `ZCMain_main_closure' can not be used when making a PIE object; recompile with -fPIC [...]
Since gcc is the default C compiler I'd expect
-pgmc gcc to change nothing and just work.
- GHC versions used: 8.8.1-8.8.3 (from hvr's PPA)
- Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04
- System Architecture: x86-64

Seems I've stumbled into the opposite of #15319 (closed)
My compiler needs the
-no-pie for ghc to work correctly.
