Comment (by jsiwek):

 I'm not that keen on adding a default compile flag for this -- mostly
 because there's differences between `-fPIC` and `-fpic` on different
 platforms and I don't want to try to make an assumption on what the user
 wants.  One easy/flexible way to resolve the error (trying to link shared
 broccoli bindings library against static broccoli library on x86_64) is:

 CFLAGS=-fPIC ./configure --enable-static

 Needing to link the broccoli bindings against a static broccoli library
 should not be a common situation that users will find themselves in.

 To wrap this up, I'll make some clarity changes to `./configure -help` and
 add an option to disable broccoli bindings as another workaround to this
 for users that just don't care about the bindings.
