On some architectures, shared libraries must be built with
x86 and others, shared libraries may build without
This can be wasteful and potentially cause a performance hit.
If you encounter a package that is not building shared libraries with
-fPIC, patch the Makefile to build only the shared libraries with
-fPIC. More information on PIC is available at the
PIC internals wiki page. If you are unsure, please ask in a public
developer forum (like the
gentoo-dev mailing list or the
#gentoo-dev IRC channel) for help.
