The NVidia GL libraries are notorious for being linked with text relocations.
Each program that so much as loads that libGL gets 10-15 MB more memory usage,
NVidia knows about this and will not do anything. Enabling -fPIC does cause a
performance regression because of indirect memory accesses and by reserving
Simply adjust your expectations: anyone using NVidia proprietary drivers will
have to deal with this issue. So discount the 10-15 MB increased memory usage
per application using libGL and check your numbers again.
