Feel free to mail me the binary again, albeit that one's going to
be more difficult to debug without being able to see it myself.

I don't understand this change to my original patch: You now
conditionally add -no-pie to HOSTCFLAGS (i.e. also for 32-bit builds),
and HOSTCFLAGS-x86_64 remains empty. I also don't see why the
addition needs to be conditional: In order to be able to build the
entire test, a reasonably new tool chain is needed anyway (much
newer than what we require for building everything else). And finally
- is there a difference between -no-pie and -fno-PIE / -fno-pie?
