Hello there,

I try to use the graphical installer to compile the RC1 on a RHEL4  64 
bit system and it aborts with the following error :

/usr/bin/ld: .libs/libthunar_vfs_1_la-thunar-vfs-deep-count-job.o: 
relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against 
`_thunar_vfs_marshal_VOID__UINT64_UINT_UINT_UINT' can not be used when 
making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[3]: *** [] Error 1

is there a way to pas -fPIC to the installer ?
