Hi I'm having some difficulties building Coco 1.1.5 against Lua 5.1.4 on
an x86_64 Linux machine, using gcc 4.4.1.

Actually, I _am_ able to get it to build and pass all the tests with the
stock Makefile + Coco patch.

But my distribution (ArchLinux) changes the Makefile as follows:

and adds -fPIC to the CFLAGS. This is needed to be able to build on x86_64.

Now, if I build with those changes plus the Coco patch, then compilation is successful _but_
the lua executable I get gives a Segmentation Fault for all of the Coco

If I disable the building of and remove -fPIC from the CFLAGS,
then the lua executable I get passes all the Coco tests.

I didn't set any COCCFLAGS, and building with a new GCC, so I'm guessing Coco is using the gccasm method.

I'm in over my head here. Is it possible to build a Lua shared library
with Coco and x86_64? If so, how should I do it? Do I need to change
some more compilation flags?

Here's the build line my distro uses (this is the version that tries to

  make INSTALL_DATA="cp -d" TO_LIB="liblua.a"  INSTALL_TOP=$startdir/pkg/usr INSTALL_MAN=$startdir/pkg/usr/share/man/man1 linux install

and here's the result if I change "make...linux install" to

I'd be glad for any help.
