There was somewhere a thread containing courier-authlib and AMD64 with -fPIC 
around in the last days. It was called "compile "vpopmail" with -fPIC on 
x86_64". I am not sure if these guys found a solution because on my AMD64 it 
works without any problems (I am using an older version) and because of this 
I didn't follow this thread...
There is one thing which makes me thinking that the mentioned thread _could_ 
be the wrong one for you... This is based on one of the error-messages you 
posted: " /var/vpopmail/lib/libvpopmail.a: could not read symbols: Bad value"
Did you already install vpopmail? IMHO courier needs some vpopmail-libraries. 
Because of the fact, that I installed the whole thing last time about 1 year 
ago, I currently don't really remember the order of installations. But maybe 
it's a point to have a look for...
Btw: IMHO the ebuilds for qmail, vpopmail and courier provided by Gentoo 
aren't very good. After having some troubles while using them, I installed 
these thing completely by hand.
Maybe you want to ask Jeremy Kitchen from Inter7 for his opinion about the 
mentioned ebuilds.
NB: Jeremy IS using Gentoo and very deep into qmail, vpopmail and these 

Just my $ 0.05
