This is a persistent problem with MKPIE: things are generated as PIC
inappropriately instead of linking other things against already-existing
PIC or shared versions of the same objects.

It is a fairly thorny Makefile problem because you have to somehow _know_
that the linker won't find and will try to use foo.a, so that you
can then change the library name supplied to the linker to foo_pic so that
it picks up foo_pic.a.

Can anyone think of an elegant way to solve this?
