Description David Woodhouse 2006-12-07 21:13:16 EST
Our libogg.a and libvorbis.a static libraries are not built with -fPIC.

HelixPlayer links these into its oggfformat.so, theorarend.so and vorbisrend.so
plugins, and these plugins therefore fail to load.

We should link against the _dynamic_ libogg and libvorbis, not the static
version. Or if we _are_ going to insist on linking against the static version,
it needs to be built with -fPIC.
