Would some configure switch sacrificing performance for avoiding
textrels be acceptable for you?
I can understand that selinux, pax and similar security urges to severe
compromises. However at least some users are willing to give up 20-40%
performance if they gain some security benefit. For these users I'm
considering building yet another variant, if it was a matter of
selecting some switch for the configure switch. 
Before starting any work on this, I'd like to know if that would be
acceptable for inclusion at all.
 this is not going to be trivial either, but I have an idea how this
could be implemented in the packaging in a way that installs a version
with textrels by default, but offers replacement packages for users that
