Shared libraries should be build using -fPIC.  It doesn't work
without it on some arches.  Static libraries on the other had
should not be build using it.  See policy section 10.2.

Here the problem is probably that it doesn't have an soname.  The
libcodeblocks.so should be a symlink to the real library.  And
the library itself should get version number added to it.

I suggest you read section 8 of the policy about shared
