I adjusted my Makefile locally to also enable this for i386, and have
since done a complete rebuild of my previous GNUstep installation.

I do not detect any performance problems while running any GNUstep
application now linked with the instead of the previous
libobjc.a ... so in my opinion (and at least one of the gcc-devs ... 
pinskia on Freenode's #GNUstep) there should not really be any reason
any longer to not revert this change for at least i386 and possibly
remove the NOPIC case alltogether ... (also future gcc's should have
this enabled on default now according to pinskia)

I don't have any real insight into the actual internals here ... so i
am solely judging from my user experience ... (on a P2 400 MHz) ...

  With kind regards,
  Pascal Hofstee
