The tradition (AIUI) on Linux is for PIC object files to have

Hmm, I've never heard of that tradition! And: cc foo.c -c -fPIC generates foo.o, not foo.os (on Ubuntu).

I haven't come across that either. Maybe some build system (or helper program like libtool) does/did this under the hood? David

Instead of .os you perhaps meant to write .so, which would be the extension for a Linux shared object file (and thus PIC)?
