For all rocks compiled directly by LuaRocks, yes. There are some
rockspecs that use the upstream Makefiles. If they honor CFLAGS they
should inherit -fPIC as well, but I can't guarantee that all of them
do -- fixes are welcome whenever anyone bumps into any of them
(preferrably to the upstream devs, so that everyone benefits).
