shared libraries policy

I think that policy needs two small corrections to reflect current
practices wrt shared libraries and PIC code:

- what is PIC library needs to be correctly defined: compiling with
  -fPIC is not enough to have PIC code, the object MUST NOT have a
  TEXTREL section either [any other symbols need to be checked? What
  about non-i386 architectures?]
- libraries can contain short sections of non-PIC code on architectures
  which allow this [i386 is OK, any other?] if this allows a
  significant speed increase.

Everybody agrees?
