Text relocations in color.c and filter_greedyhdeint.c

Description

When trying to run MythTV 0.21-fixes on Fedora 11 with SELinux enabled, I get the following error:

SELinux is preventing mythfrontend from loading /usr/lib/mythtv/filters/libgreedyhdeint.so which requires text relocation

According to a Red Hat article, compilation with -fPIC should fix the problem unless the text relocation is taking place in ASM code (which appears to be the case with filter_greedyhdeint.c including greedyh.asm).

http://people.redhat.com/drepper/textrelocs.html

The workaround is to configure SELinux to allow text relocation in this library, but it would be better if MythTV fixed the security problem.
