Not really. I suspect with
or similar it will work fine without.

To detect whether PIC is enabled by the compiler without extra options
(usually implying that also -fPIE is set), as is the case for the
OpenBSD, (darwin64?), haiku and hardened gentoo compilers.
It also is related to this code in libavutil/internal.h:

On AMD64 in particular that means that if any of __PIC__ __pic__ or PIC
are defined the inline asm code will be generated as PIC-relative.
Above change is one way to make the YASM-code behave the same.
