In the fix for #20439, we added clang wrappers to add the -fPIE flag, and avoid a build error when the -fPIE flag is explicitly set in the FLAGS.

After the switch to esr52, we should check if using those wrappers is still needed, or if they can be removed.

I have now started a build in gitian with the same changes to confirm.
