Yesterday you sent me mail regarding [rrd-developers] Possible problem...:
*> Ok, I think I understand the RRDs.xs problem I have. I'm trying to get
*> a different recompile done to verify my theory. The theory is one of
*> linking non PIC code into a shared object. This generally does not work.
*> Let you know if that is what it turns out to be in the end.
*> [Time passes]...
*> Hmm, that does seem to be it. If I do --enable-shared, things seem
*> to start working with the RRDs code. I think no matter if things
*> are --enable-shared, or not, we should always be doing -fPIC (or
*> whatever the systems equivelant is) for the static (and shared)
*> libraries we generate. In that way, when we link up a RRDs, which
*> is a shared object, we get PIC code...
hmmm ... so the question is only how do we get the beautiful libtool thing
todo this PIC dance for us :-)
