as per summary, Readline 5.x fails to build on FreeBSD SPARC systems (in this 
case Gentoo/FreeBSD but the same seems to apply for standard FreeBSD, 
standing by [1]), because -fpic limits the size of the GOT table to 8K on 
SPARC (see gcc manpage).

With the attached patch, the issue is solved, by using -fPIC that avoid the 
limits of the GOT.
