You need to build dynamic version of ATLAS or alternatively make ATLAS 
use -fPIC during compilation when building static libs. Note that AFAIK 
ATLAS 3.8.2's make install does not copy over the dynamic libs, but you 
should be easily be able to copy them over manually.

The patch I am using is

but you would need to add the appropriate lines for the multi threaded 
libs, too. The install issue is fixed in ATLAS 3.9.x AFAIK.
