libtool version is 1.5.26. I fear just adding CFLAGS=-fPIE is not
going to cut it:

  CC       pam_mount_la-pam_mount.lo
.libs/pam_mount_la-pam_mount.o: relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against symbol 
`pam_sm_authenticate' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile 
with -fPIC
final link failed: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Calling it with make V=2 shows that the following command lines
are used by make:

 gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  (...) -fPIE -MT
 pam_mount_la-pam_mount.lo -MD -MP -MF
 .deps/pam_mount_la-pam_mount.Tpo -c pam_mount.c -fPIC -DPIC -o

And when collect2 throws an error this means that -fPIC did
not override -fPIE. So libtool needs to munge the -fPIE
(and -fpie and -fpic, BTW) when adding -fPIC itself.
