Quick question. Should we be building X11R6 modules with -fPIC? When I
try, the resulting modules generate lots of unresolved symbols (like
What exactly are X11R6 modules? Are they shared libraries? If so, they
should be built using -fPIC? If they are not shared libraries, how are
they "loaded" and "linked" in?
If they are "loaded and linked" into a normal shared library, then -fPIC
should be used anyway.
I guess I don't understand how a load-on-demand module can be created
Any guidance you (or anyone else :-) might provide would be greatly
