I think you can ignore inline assembler for anything other than
C (including C++).  I've never thought about it, but inline assembler
in Fortran code sounds truly frightening!  Anyway, if it was so
important, why doesn't the compiler define it for you?

Yes, although it would be nice if the other languages also had a way of
knowing they should emit PIC, at least if they allow conditional
compilation and/or inline assembler (the most prominent being assembler
itself -- I don't know whether everyone uses the gcc frontend to
assemble stuff).
