Glibc 2.3 on alpha require dynamic libraries to be compiled with -fPIC.
This was not the case for Glibc 2.2

Yes and in fact I believe -fPIC should be the default outside x86, since
on other platform either 1) it breaks or 2) there is no slow down.

The problem is that libpari.a should not be compiled with -fPIC,
unless we are in case 2) above where it is free.

There is very few arch/os which support non PIC libraries.
