the issue here is that <cflags> is not passed through like this, we need to either make them passed, or issue
an error.

Anyway, the most immediate solution would be something like:

        feature.feature fpic : off on : composite ;

        feature.compose <fpic>on : <cflags>-fPIC <cxxflags>-fPIC ;

and use <fpic>on

Does this help?
