No, the AIX ABI specifies that _all_ code is PIC. So there is no need
for separately compiled PIC objects. At least, that's what I remember
from my AIX 4.3.3 days. Regardless, the code in subversion/svn/ does
not need to be in a library (that is just the 'svn' command line
client), so there's no point in compiling it twice anyway.

I suspect your problem is that libtool doesn't support AIX very well at
all. This certainly used to be the case! But I haven't heard anything
recent about that.
