This is new; it has been probably a couple of weeks since I last compiled
trunk.

The X11 device fails to link because it was not compiled with -fPIC.  The
recent changes to the cairo device, to also be a shared object -- may make it
fail, too.

Gcc suggests adding -fPIC; doing so in CFLAGS allows the compile to finish.

I only tested on an amd64 box, using gcc-4.4.
