ticket #627: pari 2.3.2 build fix for Linux PPC 32 bit

[This is CCed to sage-devel]

Hello folks,

I am a Sage developer who has ported Sage to 32 bit PPC Linux. While doing so I come across the following issue: Linux PPC need -fPIC otherwise pari compiles and links fine, but upon execution we get the following error:

[mabshoff@localhost sage-2.8.4]$ gp
gp: error while loading shared libraries: /tmp/Work/sage-2.8.4/spkg/build/pari-2.3.2.p1/src/Olinux-ppc/libpari-gmp.so.2: R_PPC_REL24 relocation at 0x0fc77278 for symbol `sqrt' out of range

The fix is obvious: add -fPIC to DLCFLAGS for linux-ppc. A path can be found at


After the patch is applied:

[mabshoff@localhost pari-2.3.2.p1]$ gp
GP/PARI CALCULATOR Version 2.3.2 (released) PowerPC running linux (PPC/GMP-4.2.1 kernel) 32-bit version compiled: Sep 9 2007, gcc-4.1.2 20070502 (Red Hat 4.1.2-12) (readline v5.2 enabled, extended help not available)

I hope you can merge the patch.
