  No. I understood that. I DID build x264 with -fPIC. I've 
put -fPIC all over the place.

For instance:

gcc -Wall -I. -O4 -ffast-math -D__X264__ -DHAVE_MALLOC_H 
-DHAVE_PTHREAD=1 -DVISUALIZE=1 -march=athlon64 -ffast-math 
-fomit-frame-pointer -O2 -fPIC -pipe -mfpmath=sse 
-ftree-vectorize -s -fomit-frame-pointer 
-DHAVE_GETOPT_LONG=1   -c -o x264.o x264.c

Where do I look now now?
