Ah, OK, this helps me to get an idea what went wrong: I link two "static"
libraries (libwslua and libwspython) into a dynamic lib (libwireshark).
This seems to cause the "static" libs to be linked/built without -fPIC.
I'll have to think about how to fix that. I'm on a business trip to Londen
for a week starting tomorrow, so I don't know whether I'll find the time
to look into this during the week (not only because of the work, but also
because I want to get and see a bit of London ;-)
If nobody beats me to it, I will look at it in a weeks time. Workaround:
Disable lua and python support in CMakeOptions.txt

Thanks for reporting/explaining
