I can't get cups to compile with gcc-4.8.1

The result is:

/bin/ld: /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.8.1/../../../../lib64/crt1.o: relocation R_X86_64_32S against `__libc_csu_fini' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.8.1/../../../../lib64/crt1.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
make[1]: *** [ippserver] Error 1

I tried CFLAGS+="-fPIC" as it suggests above, but it makes no difference.

Any ideas?
