Apparently, the linker requires use of the "-fPIC" option
("PIC" stands for "position independent code") for linking a shared

The problem might come from your system's Python installation
(apparently, that one is used). Usually, you would have
a "libpython*.so" (i.e. a shared object) and it would contain
modules compiled with "-fPIC". In your case, the
static library "libpython*.a" seems to be used and (apparently)
contains not position idependent modules.
