Hi Brad,
The QEMU buildbot is failing on brad_openbsd_current as follows:

   Building optionrom/multiboot.img
ld: multiboot.o: relocation R_X86_64_16 can not be used when making a
shared object; recompile with -fPIC
multiboot.o: could not read symbols: Bad value


Do you have time to investigate?

If not, please CC people who could help.


I have been meaning to try to attempt to come up with a patch to resolve this issue but haven't come up with anything. I have a patch in the OpenBSD ports tree that allows QEMU to build but its just taking that and having it fit within the configure/Makefile infrastructure and applied for OpenBSD only.


The issue has come up as OpenBSD 5.3 and newer now builds all binaries by default on almost all of our architectures with PIE by default; so the ROMs need to be built with PIE disabled.

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
