10.2. Libraries

     The shared version of a library must be compiled with `-fPIC', and the
     static version must not be.  In other words, each source unit (`*.c',
     for example, for C files) will need to be compiled twice.

hrm, but yeah of course, one could say that it's fine if a
library compiled with -fPIC still contains non position
independant code. :)
