    - The WebSphere MQ v7.5
    - The IBM MQ v8.0

    Linux on zSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The gcc option "-fpic" is a compiler parameter for position
    independent code but it has been used as a linker option by the
    MQ Classes for Java to permit the use of the queue manager as an
    XA coordinator for work involving a database.  The parameter is
    not a valid linker option.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The "-fpic" link option has been removed from the Linux makefile
    for XA switch load files.
