no, the error message is misleading
what it means is that the linker encounters something that
_gcc_ does not create out of C code when -fPIC is used
and thus asks you to rebuild with -fPIC
the error message thus makes only sense when no asm code is involved

The configuration that causes this problem is with PIC and shared
libs on 64bit linux

maybe microsoft windows supports "R_X86_64_32" relocations, i dont
know that.

with non-PIC the code is build for a specific address and nothing
special is needed
with PIC all referencnes to global data and code must be RIP relative
or "fixed" by the runtime linker to match the actual address.
On x86_64 linux the linker doesnt support "R_X86_64_32" relocations
so they cant be used for addressing things that would need relocations

i hope above makes sense ...
