reading on, i also noticed:
"Shared object files (often .so files) that are not public libraries,
that is, they are not meant to be linked to by third party executables
(binaries of other packages), should be installed in subdirectories of
the /usr/lib directory. Such files are exempt from the rules that govern
ordinary shared libraries, except that they must not be installed
executable and should be stripped [A common example are the so-called
"plug-ins", internal shared objects that are dynamically loaded by
programs using dlopen(3).]"

i understand this as the "-fPIC" rule actually doesn't apply at all to
nevertheless, it complies with it...
