only case i found that breaks is with --enable-libxavs
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libxavs.a(common.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.1' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libxavs.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

not sure our configure should detect this or if thats beyond its
