I'll re-check that with the ppc architecture guy here.

Shared libraries don't work on the S/390 platforms unless compiled
with -fPIC. The lowercase -fpic is not sufficient there. I don't
remember the details, but the architecture gurus told me that -fPIC is
strictly needed. Here at SuSE all shared libs on all platforms get
built with -fPIC .
