Maybe I am getting paranoid or it is too late at night but something
looks awfully wrong ... all modules should compile using PIC.  

This should really be done using .lo in the OBJECTS.  However, for
reasons I cannot remember the GUI modules which have been around for
some time use .o instead.  They get PIC, though, by


The modules added in 1.3.0 do not do this, which I think is wrong.

I'll be gone for a workshop for the next two days, and will look into
this on Thu.
