Description Jerry James 2012-03-15 14:30:25 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm developing a libreport plugin for my employer, to facilitate internal crash reporting for locally developed applications.  Using pkgconfig resulted in -fPIC in the CFLAGS of the executables.  This is because "pkg-config --cflags libreport" includes -fPIC.  It shouldn't.  That flag is needed only if the consumer is building a library, which I am not.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pkg-config --cflags libreport
Actual results:
The result contains -fPIC.

Expected results:
I should specify -fPIC myself if I am building a library, and not if I am building an executable; pkg-config shouldn't force me to use it in all cases.
