There's posix_spawnattr_setflags() that can do the job
but the necessary flag appeared only in Lion.

To the best of my knowledge, there's no link-time option that disables
ASLR but keeps PIE on Snow Leopard or Lion.
At the moment we're using DYLD_NO_PIE with Chromium binaries to
disable ASLR at runtime.
