         I am trying to port Bionic Libc on to Genode. At time,I'm struck
with the following error that comes when i compiled the library.

relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against undefined symbol `__set_errno' can not be
used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

>From the above compilation error, I understood that *bionic_libc_x86.lib.a*
is not compiled with* -fPIC* flag enabled(which is needed for Position
Independent code generation by compiler and that is what essentially needed
in Shared LIb buiding(**) that uses the above static
library). So, i assigned *-fPIC* flag to compiler variable *CC_OPT* to
resolve it, but it is not showing the effect.

So, can any one tell me how can I resolve it. Correct me if I'm wrong
