mmmh, from what you are saying I might sarcastically (the AE/UE meaning)
ups, a typo on my side, I meant AE/BE ... American English/British English.
The ldflags you provided helped on your system (and I don't mean the
path) and for your use-case, I am not convinced they will help everybody
(with similar needs).
(--disable-shared is the default, so using it in your configure line makes
Interesting. Thanks for the heads-up.
Anyhow, the flags I posted produce static libraries only that contain PIC.
And that was what I was after.
If --enable-pic really made a difference, you should ask yourself again
(carefully) if that's really what you want.
(Note that enable-pic is the default on x86-64 and cannot be turned off
afair, it hurts on x86-32 and cannot do what people want because
FFmpeg binaries are not position independent on x86-32, no matter
the pic option.)
Wow, that is really good to know for my use case.
