On x86_64 it doesn't even get that far:
/usr/bin/ld: libelf_pic.a(elf_error.os): relocation R_X86_64_TPOFF32 against `a local
symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
libelf_pic.a(elf_error.os): could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
So, um. Is there something wrong with, "So don't do that!"?
If you used that configure line for any other package that builds libraries
