In terms of packages that matter to me, it's only these libs
claimed by prelink to not be compiled with -fPIC.
Is there something I can do with, eg, objdump to probe the PIC-ness
/usr/lib/libxml++-2.6.so.2 that prelink refuses to work with or
otherwise debug this futher?
Looking at the prelink source for generating the error it uses the
presence of TEXTREL in the .so as indicating it isn't built with -fPIC.
In both libxml++ and libstdc++ cases, those .sos do have a TEXTREL entry
when I look with objdump -x, but as a random sanity check
/usr/lib/libssl.so.8 that doesn't make prelink trouble does NOT have
So this doesn't seem to be any prelink issue, the libs are not tagged
right themselves by ld if I understood it as being the
position-independent libs they should be.
Further, I checked libstdc++ and libxml++ on my x86_64 box with the same
objdump test, TEXTREL is absent.
