I'm against it.

If you have optimized assembler versions of some code for some platforms
(like the STL has, for example) and some of that code is not PIC, it is
a good idea to enclose it in #ifndef PIC. So dropping -DPIC will remove
an useful feature and make everything that uses it miscompile (for some
platforms, in a fatal way).
