yep, that's how you would do it.  You could also do something like (assuming 

# export CFLAGS="-fPIC"
# ./configure .....

but that would also affect all subsequent builds within that session.

One thing I like to do, is create (outside of the source tree) files called 
say... ./configure-sqwebmail, ./configure-vpopmail, etc.. that contain my 
configure command lines.  For instance, here's my ./configure-apache


exec ./configure --with-so --enable-rewrite --enable-suexec \
    --with-suexec-caller=nobody --with-suexec-docroot=/home/www --enable-ssl \
    --enable-proxy --enable-dav --enable-dav-fs

you could easily do something like:


exec CFLAGS=-fPIC ./configure ......

no need for apologies, everyone is new at some point :)
