If memory serves me, the pic patches has something to do with the fact that
on some versions of FreeBSD's perl port, there was no shared library
version on libperl built, only a static one. I believe that if there was
only a static libperl.a, the PIC helped so that ``createlang plperl''

It could also have something to do with amd64?

Anyway, the patch *is* needed in some circumstances, and is a noop in
other. Sorry I can't be more helpful about what the patch is good for... ;-)
