We're starting to discuss enabling PKGSRC_MKPIE by default. While some of the discussion is about documentation and the missing package-settable variable to disable it, I'd like to understand how much testing it's had. If you have a netbsd-8 i386 or amd64 system (or some other system where PKGSRC_MKPIE enables the PIE flags), and you are inclined, it would be good to enable PKGSRC_MKPIE in mk.conf and rebuild your packages, and see what happens. Please post your experience, including roughly how many packages you built, any that currently fail to build, and especially any that fail to work. The default hypothesis is that few fail to build, and very few that build fail to work as expected, but it would be nice to have some confirmation.
