I'm wondering if we should just update the common `Makefile.rules` and if `DYLIB_NAME` is set (or something else indicating that this is a shared library), then we put the logic about `-fPIC` in that common file.  Then people wouldn't have to remember to get this right in the future.

Adding -fPIC by default sounds like a great idea. Building a shared library without it will probably break compilation, but if some test still wants to try it, it can be turned off with `-fno-PIC`.
