This gets added by libtool.m4 here (line 4311):
case "$host_os" in
  # For platforms which do not support PIC, -DPIC is meaningless:
    _LT_AC_TAGVAR(lt_prog_compiler_pic, $1)=
$1)="$_LT_AC_TAGVAR(lt_prog_compiler_pic, $1) -DPIC"

This seems quite wrong. Why do we assume the compiler will grok -DPIC?
Why isn't this handled in the tag-specific and os-specific portions of
libtool.m4? If the tag/os combo says -KPIC is needed, why do we -KPIC
