Well, you said

in the log, but is it really true?

On VAX, MKPIC is "no" so *.so files are not built.
(MKSHLIBOBJS is only checked inside .if ${MKPIC} != "no")

On MIPS, *.so files _should_ be built even though MKPICLIB=no
on it because only should have dlopen calls.
(I guess that's the reason why CSHLIBFLAGS was introduced)
