I've encountered this problem before while building certain ports for
amd64, but I've decided it's time to ask for some details as to what it
Here's a sample from a failed build of devel/subversion:
relocation R_X86_64_32 can not be used when making a shared object;
recompile with -fPIC
OK, I know that adding "-fPIC" to this or that Makefile resolves this
issue, but can anyone explain what this is actually all about?
