             Bug #: 45711
           Summary: libwocky needs to be built with -fPIC
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Wocky
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: General
        AssignedTo: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: siraj.razick at collabora.co.uk
         QAContact: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

We recently refactored telepathy gabble plugin api so that there is a separate
library which the plugins
can link agaist, and contains the symbols needed by the plugins. 

unmerged branch can be found at :

We have one more issue standing in  our way from merging this. When building
this patch for 64bit architecture, we get the following error.

relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.text' can not be used when making a shared
object; recompile with -fPIC

So Olli suggested we add -fPIC option to AM_CLAGS and rebuild them. this bug is
to find the best solution.
