It's mentioned in ./configure --help.

  --with-pic[=PKGS]       try to use only PIC/non-PIC objects [default=use

I can't find it anywhere in GMP's configure.ac, though, so maybe it's an
automake or libtool thing?

For alpha assembly files I don't think it matters, but for some other
achitectures, assembly files depend on the m4 symbol PIC. How is that
set up? Doing a static library, but nevertheless using pic only, is a
reasonable configuration.
