I'm getting problems with ClamAV (0.85, 0.85.1 and 0.86.1) as well as  
Pango (as part of an Ethereal build).  This is on a 3.0 BETA macppc  
system (2005-06-18 snapshot) with the 25jun05 pkgsrc.tar.gz file (the  
ClamAV versions before 0.86.1 were with an older pkgsrc.tar.gz)

With ClamAV the build works fine but trying to run freshclam results in:

# freshclam
/usr/pkg/lib/ Unsupported relocation type 10 in non- 
PLT relocations

and during the build of the Ethereal dependancies I see:

Writing a pango.modules file to use when running examples before  
installing Pango.
Unsupported relocation type 10 in non-PLT relocations

I've Googled enough to know it has to do with -fPIC/-FPIC and trying  
to link non-relocatable objects into relocatable ones, but that's  
pretty much all I've found on the subject: unless there's some simple  
thing I've missed, this does require a decent knowledge of the inner  
workings of {g}cc/ld and the structure of libraries (which I don't  
currently possess).

I'm (very) willing to learn in order to help solve this one, but I  
haven't got very far by myself and would welcome all suggestions  
(apart from changing the architecture :)  I can probably provide SSH  
access to someone who knows what they're doing and doesn't have a 3.0  
BETA macppc machine if this gets very tough.

Any starting points would be great.

Thanks in advance,
Ian Spray.
