We recently refactored telepathy gabble plugin api so that there is a separate
library which the plugins
can link agaist, and contains the symbols needed by the plugins. 

unmerged branch can be found at :

We have one more issue standing in  our way from merging this. When building
this patch for 64bit architecture, we get the following error.

relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.text' can not be used when making a shared
object; recompile with -fPIC

So Olli suggested we add -fPIC option to AM_CLAGS and rebuild them. this bug is
to find the best solution.
