This is not supported way of creating shared libraries, './config shared
....' is! If configured with shared option assembler modules come out
position-independent and .dylib is linked successfully. One can argue
that MacOS X assembler modules should be generated position-independent
unconditionally (in line with vendor compiler default), but assembler is
not the only reason to configure with shared option.

Examine accompanying ./INSTALL file perhaps. A.
