Sudo ships with a bundled version of libtool 2.4.  The .o files in
the .libs directory are the PIC object files.  The .lo file will
tell you the path to the PIC and non-PIC objects.  E.g.

    # Name of the PIC object.

    # Name of the non-PIC object

What does find_path.lo look like on your system?

I build sudo packages for several flavors of Linux for each release
and have never run into the problem you describe.  The only reason
I can think of would be if the non-PIC objects are not being built.
