There have been a discussion about the -fPIC option a few month ago
(november or december 2015). I don't remember what exactly it was
about. I think I said I would submit a patch that add -fPIC for 32
bits even thought it wouldn't have an actual effect regarding current

This option is definitely required for 64 bits, and it is
theoretically required for 32 bits. But I haven't investigated the
current issue.
