-fPIC on link line in winegcc for HPUX

Hi all,

Another change I had to make for HPUX that I'm not 100% sure about:

The HPUX linker gets quite unhappy unless the gcc link line inside of 
winegcc is fed -fPIC.  The problem is that the collect2 phase builds it's 
own temporary object file that gets included in the final link, and if 
that temp .o file isn't compiled with -fPIC, the HP linker complains.  In 
order to get this to work, I had to add -fPIC to the list of link flags 
that winegcc recognizes:

The question:  is this going to be harmful on other platforms?   I'm not 
sure whether I should protect it with ifdefs, or just leave it as is.

Any suggestions?
