One more thing I stumbled upon:

" Note:

Zlib is known to build its shared library incorrectly if CFLAGS is 
specified in the environment. If using a specified CFLAGS variable, be 
sure to add the -fPIC directive to the CFLAGS variable for the duration 
of the configure command below, then remove it afterwards."

(Quote from LFS-6.0, ch. 6.16)

I don't know/understand why this should only be added 'for the duration 
of the configure command' and if this is possible in the profiles, but I 
think it should either be added to the whole package or the CFLAGS 
should be unset.
