-fPIC flag is missing while building the libraries
This prevents other software to build with this library
A quick fix was to add -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS=-fPIC -CMAKE_C_FLAGS=-fPIC (see PKGBUILD)
Also the md5sum is wrong.

Additional info:
* package version(s): qhull 2012.1-1

* config and/or log files etc.
This is the error message I get (can't provide the source code)
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.7.0/../../../../lib/libqhullstatic.a(global.c.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `qh_qh' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.7.0/../../../../lib/libqhullstatic.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Steps to reproduce:
Sorry I am not allowed to share the original code.
   PKGBUILD (1.1 KiB)
This task depends upon

Only do this for x86_64.
