Ah, this is my bug, sorry I didn't reply. Now I checked your package. It
is still wrong, actually it now has bigger problems now: the shared
library is generated from the same non-pic code as the static library.
There should be two sets of objects (meaning compiling twice): one
compiled with -fPIC, these should be used for generating the shared
library, the other compiled without -fPIC, these should be used for
generating the static library. I know this involves quite a bit of work,
thats why I didn't include this in the patch for building the shared
library I've sent you in the first place ;)
