Description of problem:
Since only static libs are being built for the lam package, on those architectures like x86_64 and ppc_64
which require all code linked into shared libaries to be built with -fPIC, this package should be built with
that flag. Currently x86_64 will not allow libmpi.a to be linked into a shared library because libmpi.a is
built without -fPIC,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to link libmpi.a into a shared library.
This bug is now fixed with lam-7.1.1-6, released as FC3 and FC4 updates today.
