Dear Sir:

Thanks for your development of MPICH first.
And I have a problem after I install mpich to compile my application.
The error is following,
/usr/bin/ld: /home/g/mpich2/lib/libmpichcxx.a(initcxx.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `vtable for MPI::Datatype' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/home/g/mpich2/lib/libmpichcxx.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

It probably means that I should recompile MPI with -fPIC. 
But I cannot understand the definite mean of this error, could you give me some advice?
Thanks and best regards!
