I have no idea.
Someone on IRC told me he had problems compiling Karbon on his AMD64

I looked around on the internet and saw that ia64 computers also had
problems with -fPIC.

(Browsing through the CMake code I saw that -fPIC is only added to the
c-flags and not the cxx-flags.)

Since it looks like this is a problem on 64 bit computers, I added this
temporary hack.

The correct solution is, like BCoppens told me on IRC, to add a check to see
if -fPIC can be used and if it needs to be used.
So compiling a little test program to see if it fails, and if it does, add
-fPIC to the cxx flags.
