[Tinycc-devel] PIC code

Subject: [Tinycc-devel] PIC code

A few questions on TCC

does the -shared flag produce a position independent code (=PIC) shared
library (*.so) or not?

apparently the answer is no (because there is no .plt or .rel.plt
generated elf sections), but I am not sure... 

Is it possible to compile to an object file .o with PIC code, so that
the generated object could be linked [with other PIC object files] (by
ld -shared) to produce a PIC *.so?

I do know that PIC usually consumes a register on x86 hence PIC code
could be slower.

I also know that non-PIC .so are doable, but requires lot of
relocation at dynamic loading time.
