To be exact: this is since gcc-6 6.2.0-7 dated Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:53:00 +0200
on amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips mipsel mips64el ppc64el s390x.

A naive "git log -Sno-PIE" on gcc sources shows commit 3e7f6cce from Feb
2004, and as gcc automatically supports no-XXX whenever XXX is added, it
appears the option is older than that.

The patch works for me. I haven't done any but most trivial testing,
. Using the https://gcc.gnu.org/git/gcc.git git gateway, commit hashes
may be different elsewhere.
A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month. Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
