You cannot link VLC with a non-PIC live555 anyway, since it is linked into a 
plugin which is a shared object. Don't blame the VLC build system for failing 
in a case that's essentially impossible to handle. Fix your live555 build 

That said, libtool does not care. If you give it a real static library (.a), 
it will just try to link it. Whether it works depends on the platform, and, if 
the platforms requires position-independence, whether the library was actually 
built position-independent.
