use same object files for libc.a and libc.so if compiler produces PIC
now that .lo and .o files differ only by whether -fPIC is passed (and no longer at the source level based on the SHARED macro), it's possible to use the same object files for both static and shared libc when the compiler would produce PIC for the static files anyway. this happens if the user has included -fPIC in their CFLAGS or if the compiler has been configured to produce PIE by default. we use the .lo files for both, and still append -fPIC to the CFLAGS, rather than using the .o files so that libc.so does not break catastrophically if the user later removes -fPIC from CFLAGS in config.mak or on the make command line. this also ensures that we get full -fPIC in case -fpic, -fPIE, or some other lesser-PIC option was passed in CFLAGS.
