Bug Description

It seems that evince is no longer built with -PIE in 15.04:

$ hardening-check /usr/bin/evince
 Position Independent Executable: no, normal executable!
 Stack protected: yes
 Fortify Source functions: no, only unprotected functions found!
 Read-only relocations: yes
 Immediate binding: no, not found!

From 14.04:

$ hardening-check /usr/bin/evince
 Position Independent Executable: yes
 Stack protected: yes
 Fortify Source functions: no, only unprotected functions found!
 Read-only relocations: yes
 Immediate binding: yes

evince is a targeted package for 'Built as PIE' here:
