meta_oe_security_flags: disable PIE for libdbus-c++
The short version - it ain't working. The long version: For shared libraries made from C++ sources, configure runs some code to determine how to link shared libraries (from libtool.m4) using g++. In particular, it calls g++ ${CFLAGS} -c conftest.c g++ ${CFLAGS} -nostdinc -shared -v conftest.o to then parse the gcc -v output. If CFLAGS contains -pie -fpie, g++ adds Scrt1.o to the objects being linked together to form the final output. Once Scrt1.o is pulled into a shared library, it becomes impossible to link this DSO against a final binary. I didn't investigate why, by I suspect because of -Wl,relro -Wl,now libtool takes note of Scrt1.o (and all other libraries added by gcc, but those don't matter here) and adds it everywhere a shared library is being created, see predep_objects= and postdep_objects= in the 'LIBTOOL TAG CONFIG: CXX' section. In other words, the the shared library created during the build can't be linked against. This includes some applications that are part of the libdbus-c++ source tree, but also any other external user. While I am not sure if the root of the issue is in - gcc (should it really add Scrt1.o despite -shared), or in - libtool (should it filter out -pie -fpie during the configure step), or even in - OE (should it really be adding -pie -fpie to everything, even shared libraries by default and unconditionally), we can make things work by using SECURITY_NO_PIE_CFLAGS instead.
