HI!

The galene.spec for openSUSE/SLE contains -buildmode=pie which IIRC I
copied from another .spec file.

But seems not supported on linux/ppc64.
I'm inclined to simply drop it.

What's your opinion on that? Does -buildmode=pie have any significant
advantages which are worth defining an arch-specific conditional?

Ciao, Michael.

pie makes for a less attackable executable.

For C programs, it might very slightly improve security by making it more
difficult to guess stack addresses in case of a buffer overflow.

However, Galène is pure Go code and doesn't use any unsafe features, so
I don't think it buys us much.  I think you can safely drop it.
