ipset + TEXTREL

Ipset builds without any errors but when run the binary, I get the 
following error;

ipset -N test ipmap
Can't modify /lib/ipset/libipset_ipmap.so's text section. Use GCC option 
-fPIC for shared objects, please.

When I check for TEXTREL (in the ipset libraries), this is the output;

root at rad-server:/usr/src/ipset-2.3.0# readelf -d 
/lib/ipset/libipset_ipmap.so | grep TEXTREL
 0x00000016 (TEXTREL)                    0x0

Has anyone experienced the same issue?
