CFLAGS+= -fPIC to the Makefile in the package should do the job.  If
it's found to fix it then I'd image the proper fix would be to wrap it
in a .if ${OPSYS} and/or .if ${MACHINE_ARC} depending on where the fix
actually is needed.  Looking at it now there's already a line that adds
-fPIC for NetBSD so I'd just suggest changing that to include Linux.
