Hi All,

I am a new member of this mailing list. I encountered the following error while trying to install collectd(ver 4.4.4) on our gentoo based linux system.

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=link gcc -Wall -Werror -g -O2 -module -avoid-version -liptc  -o iptables.la -rpath /opt/collectd/lib/collectd iptables.lo
gcc -shared  .libs/iptables.o  -liptc  -Wl,-soname -Wl,iptables.so -o .libs/iptables.so
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.4/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.4/../../../../lib64/libiptc.a(libip4tc.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `iptc_free' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.4/../../../../lib64/libiptc.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

make[3]: *** [iptables.la] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/collectd-4.4.4/src'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/collectd-4.4.4/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Due to this I am not able to proceed further on using collectd. Please can anyone let me know the procedure to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance.
