Other platforms tend to be more sloppy about shared objects.  It would be 
possible to make it work on the ARM without too much trouble but because 
non-PIC shared objects will always be less efficient than those done "right" 
nobody has bothered,

Making the error message more friendly is on my list of things to do but 
somewhere near the bottom.  It would also be possible to have the program 
linker emit a warning at compile time if you were generating a shared object 
with invalid relocs.
