The part of patch to bug 690009 relevant to this bug

This is a small part of the patch posted for bug 690009 relevant to this bug.
See the analysis over there. 

AFAIK, this has never worked properly - every object files constituting a
shared library needed to be compiled with -fPIC and this was not the case (and
it occasionally works but there is no gaurantee).
