[Xen-devel] dynamic libraries

While looking at tools build I noticed that same object files are used to build 
static and dynamic libraries (libxc, libxutil). It's normally required to 
compile in
PIC form for dynamic ones. At first I thought that no applcations use those 
but no, they are used by all of them. Surprisingly it doens't cause any 
problems (at
least nobody's complaining, ld.so even).

Well, anyway it doesn't look correct for me, I'd like to come up with a patch
but it'll take some time, so I wouldn't mind if some Makefile savvy beat me on 
Short term solution would be always set -fPIC.
