[mythtv] 64-bit SUSE and SVN mythtv.

I have just built mythtv on 64-bit again, but I had to do a few things to get 
that far. Looking forward to seeing if I can actually use it this time....:

./configure --libdir-name=lib64 --disable-ivtv --disable-dvb


adding -fPIC to the Makefile in libs/libmythtv to get it to compile (the 
compiler was kind enough to tell me, after I activated swap so it could 
actually process the data. Monster computation there...)

I assume that -fPIC is only needed on 64-bit systems. My 32-bit systems did 
not need this.

Would it be possible to do this automatically on 64-bit builds, assuming it's 
not gcc 4.1 specific? If it is a gcc 4.1/64-bit issue, could this be detected 
and fixed?
