Unless someone has a better idea I plan on adding DoPicLib support to
The idea is to create static libraries of objects compiled with -fPIC(if
needed) with the name template libfoo_pic.a in much the same way as
My current thinking is to enable DoPicLib for only those libraries that don't
have DoSharedLib set, i.e.
Although obviously DoPicLib could be set for all libraries if required.
There is the option of defining StatcNeedsPicForShared (for all platforms
except vax and mips), but this has the disadvantage that these X libraries
would have to be special cased in libtool, autoconf, etc...
