Your toolchain is broken/sucks. :-)
That needs to get fixed. I build packages with a patch on non-x86
platforms (I haven't tried to figure out which platforms are fine and
which aren't). See the spec at
for what I'm doing to get around this.

I have found a very annoying bug in FC4 for Amd64 regarding gcc, ld
and friends, and I don't know how to work around it.
I thought I was going to help out a little on the Mozilla project, but
when trying to build from source I got kicked in the balls by the
"/usr/bin/ld: deflate.o: relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against
`memcpy@(a)GLIBC_2.2.5' can not be used when making a shared object;
recompile with -fPIC"
I have tried tweaking the build in several ways to go around it but
without success, and when I talk about this problem I usually get
"your tool-chain is broken/sucks" as a response.
The only workaround I've found so far is to install the normal x86
fc4, but since I got an Amd64 it would feel a little like a waste.. :/
Is there another way? Other Gcc-packages? Ld?
