[xmlsec] 64-bit Linux link error

The problem was not a wrong library. The problem was that only the dynamic libraries in xmlsec are built with -fPIC. Once I added -fPIC to the CFLAGS, then the build worked.

This appears to only be a problem on 64-bt Linux. 32-bit Linux and 32-bit Solaris worked for me without needed to add -fPIC or -pic.

Looks like you are picking up the wrong library somewhere. Check your command line.
