Error building Python bindings on Solaris

I'm trying to build the Python bindings for Subversion 1.3.0 on Solaris
and I get the following error during "make swig-py":

cd subversion/bindings/swig/python/libsvn_swig_py && /bin/bash /src/misc/subversion-1.3.0/obj/solaris9/libtool --tag=CC --silent --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -g -O2 -pthreads -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -DNE_LFS -R/opt/local/lib -L/opt/local/lib -L/src/misc/subversion-1.3.0/obj/solaris9/apr-util/xml/expat/lib -rpath /opt/subversion-1.3.0/lib -L/opt/Python-2.4.2/lib/python2.4/config -lpython2.4 -o libsvn_swig_py-1.la swigutil_py.lo ../../../../../subversion/libsvn_subr/libsvn_subr-1.la ../../../../../subversion/libsvn_delta/libsvn_delta-1.la ../../../../../subversion/libsvn_wc/libsvn_wc-1.la /src/misc/subversion-1.3.0/obj/solaris9/apr-util/libaprutil-0.la -lgdbm /src/misc/subversion-1.3.0/obj/solaris9/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/libexpat.la /src/misc/subversion-1.3.0/obj/solaris9/apr/libapr-0.la -lsendfile -lrt -lm -lsocket -lnsl -lresolv -lpthread -ldl -lsocket -lz

A bit about my environment:

Solaris 9 (sparc)
gcc 4.0.2
Subversion 1.3.0
No Berkeley DB

My configure options:

CPPFLAGS='-I/opt/local/include' \
  LDFLAGS='-R/opt/local/lib -L/opt/local/lib' \
  ./configure \
        --prefix=/opt/subversion-1.3.0 \
        --without-berkeley-db \
        --with-apxs \
        --with-ssl \
        --with-zlib \
        --disable-mod-activation \

Python is 2.4.2, built locally from source and compiled using gcc.

I was able to build Subversion 1.2.3's Python bindings against Python
2.4.2 just fine.

This URL seems to suggest that the problem is lack of -fPIC when


I'm not sure if Python needs to be recompiled or if Subversion needs
-fPIC added?
