Thanks for info, but it doesn't seem to address the -fPIC question.

Don't worry if you get a message about failed spawn of dbus-launch. I believe this just means the new setting isn't applied yet. For me the new setting was applied once I logged off and back in.

2012-07-29 14:01:48 -0600 asked a question *-static library packages without -fPIC

Is it official policy that the *-static library packages are compiled without -fPIC? I've tried using libstdc++-static and libboost-static to statically link specific versions of these libraries into a shared module and neither of them had -fPIC so I had to start from scratch.

I realize there are some disadvantages to -fPIC, but are they significant? If the *-static packages cannot be used for the purpose outlined above, would there be any support for providing *-static-fpic or something like that?

I'm not sure how this is handled by other distros. I've noticed that the macports *-static packages seem to build with -fPIC.
