Quoting policy:
     As to the static libraries, the common case is not to have relocatable
     code, since there is no benefit, unless in specific cases; therefore
     the static version must not be compiled with the `-fPIC' flag.  Any
     exception to this rule should be discussed on the mailing list
     _debian-devel at lists.debian.org_, and the reasons for compiling with
     the `-fPIC' flag must be recorded in the file `README.Debian'.  [3]

If you need a libmysqld which can be used by shared objects, then please
add libmysqld_pic.a in addition to the non-PIC version.
