Several object files are shared between the libbz2.so shared library
and the libbz2.a static one. MIPS will refuce to build a relocatable
object when creating a new shared library with the following error:

blocksort.o: relocation R_MIPS_HI16 against `__gnu_local_gp' can not be used
when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

This is because these files are build without -fPIC when creating the
static library and later on they are used to build the shared one.

This is easily fixed if we add the shared library build rule before
creating the static library so object files are always compiled with
