Thank you, I followed the blfs book but removed -DASMV from zip-2.31 and
-DASM_CRC from unzip-5.52, both seem to work fine.

Is there a way to check if something I compiled is pic?
I like to follow the blfs book, but how can I tell that jpeglib (or
something else) is working properly? (a binairy is runable, so if it's
non-pic it will bail out like unzip did)

I do understand the feeling they have, currently I'am building a (small)
tractor-puller, and for us performance is also more important than
following standards. (sorry)
Glad where not driving on a PaX-track ;-)
