I don't get it... This just changes what you're allowed to pass in via
your own CFLAGS variable.  If xorg-x11 is unstable on alpha due to PIC
issues, then we need to fix the Makefiles to include -fPIC where
necessary.

OTOH, usually lacking -fPIC results in a build failure, not run-time
failures.  Are you sure this is what made the difference for you?

Aron
