Comment (by jsiwek):

 I think I have a better solution ready for testing now (on an x86_64

 # get the broccoli repository with python bindings
 git clone --recursive git://git.bro-ids.org/broccoli

 # this currently fails (in master branch)
 ./configure --enable-static && make

 # switch to branch w/ better solution
 git checkout topic/jsiwek/shared-static-defaults

 # this should now succeed and build both static and shared libbroccoli
 ./configure && make

 # this is now the case that does not automatically work
 ./configure --disable-shared && make
 # but after one gives it thought, decides they actually want this,
 # and finds the appropriate -fpic versus -fPIC option:
 CFLAGS=-fPIC ./configure --disable-shared && make
