all PIE distro

Major props to NCommander for taking on the painful experiment of getting the entire Ubuntu Intrepid archive rebuilt with PIE on amd64. After getting all the other hardening defaults enabled for Intrepid, PIE is the last on the original list for enabling “by default”. Due to the overhead of PIE on i386, it’s really only an option on architectures with lots of general registers.
