Compiling all libs with -fPIC requires a rewrite of all the
assembly stubs in the various libraries to use PIC type
relocation and not pic type relocation.  I started on this (did
not finish), but I think that's a too large change to introduce
this late in the release cycle for this point release.

Right.  I'm currently testing this.

However, I think that libstdc++ also needs to be compiled -fPIC
in that case, since for some reason it includes c++rt0.o on
a.out, and all the objs in a shared lib must be compiled with the
same relocation.  (I'm still a little uncertain whether all
shared libs used by an executable on sparc/a.out needs to use the
same the same relocation -- maybe not.)

How did you get libstdc++ to build?
