For 2.0.x, the binary-dist target in the top-level Makefile does this:

binary-dist: FORCE
        @if test -f configure && test -f ; then \
          ./configure --enable-shared --enable-lite-kernel ; \
        else \
          echo "" ; \
          echo "*** You must run make binary-dist in the source directory." ; \
          echo "" ; \
          exit 1 ; \
        $(MAKE) -f octMakefile CFLAGS=-O CXXFLAGS=-O all
        $(MAKE) -f octMakefile binary-dist

So if you didn't configure with --enable-shared the first time around,
it may compile a lot of stuff again, using the PIC flags.
