As the library is i386 only (with little chance of getting ported) and
missing PIC doesn't cause problems on i386 but only on other
architectures AFAIK I (in my function as member of the release team)
see no problem to ignore that error (CCed to -release for
documentation) and to therefor install an override for it.
