Bug#542909: icedove FTBFS on mips*

Package: icedove
Severity: serious


by chance I noticed that icedove did FTBFS with:
/usr/bin/ld: ../../dist/lib/libxptcmd.a(xptcinvoke_asm_mips.o): relocation R_MIPS_HI16 against `__gnu_local_gp' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
../../dist/lib/libxptcmd.a(xptcinvoke_asm_mips.o): could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

This looks like bug 541797, and the fix could easily be the same (just
that currently I know of nothing which is blocked by that).
