Subject: Re: [Boost-build] building boost static libraries with position independent code

Hi Peter,

That would force PIC code on static libraries, it seems. It might not be
the best idea, since position independent code needs a few indirections,
and therefore will be a tad slower. It's not a big deal for desktop
systems, but might become a problem on less powerful hardware.
