E shlib-with-non-pic-code

All reports of shlib-with-non-pic-code for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The listed shared libraries contain object code that was compiled without -fPIC. All object code in shared libraries should be recompiled separately from the static libraries with the -fPIC option.

Another common mistake that causes this problem is linking with gcc -Wl,-shared instead of gcc -shared.

In some cases, exceptions to this rule are warranted. If this is such a case, follow the procedure outlined in Policy and then please document the exception by adding a lintian override to this package.

To check whether a shared library has this problem, run readelf -d on the shared library. If a tag of type TEXTREL is present, the shared library contains non-PIC code.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.2 (Libraries) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible

Check: shared-libs, Type: binary, udeb
