Is there a way to build a non-PIC shared library with l4env?

Yes, I found it: the symbols 'crt0_tramppage' and 'main' were referenced from libl4env.p.a. Strange, because it has '.p' suffix... But when I remove this
library from linker command line, the next symbol is missing: 'l4env_request_config_u32'. Who may need it and what libs could be safely removed?
