Hello team,

Shortly after the beginning, vlc master compilation is failing with this link 

/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: /usr/
a.asm.o): relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against symbol 
`x265_intel_cpu_indicator_init' can not be used when making a shared object; 
recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: final 
link failed: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:16940: recipe for target 'libx265_plugin.la' failed
make[4]: *** [libx265_plugin.la] Error 1

X265 contrib itself compile well : no error.

The issue has been here for more then 7 days, this was the case, last 23rd.
