patch

Unless devel/cpu_features is built with -fPIC option, applications that links to libcpu_features.a fails to build. No ports depends on libcpu_features.a so far but a port I'm creating depends on the library.

/usr/bin/ld: error: can't create dynamic relocation R_X86_64_64 against local symbol in readonly segment; recompile object files with -fPIC
>>> defined in /usr/local/lib/libcpu_features.a(cpuinfo_x86.c.o)
>>> referenced by cpuinfo_x86.c
>>>               cpuinfo_x86.c.o:(.rodata+0x8) in archive /usr/local/lib/libcpu_features.a

Port has been updated to pass -fPIC to cc. Thanks for the report
