ParaView 5.9.0-RC1 superbuild compile issues with scipy

When compiling ParaView 5.9.0-RC1 I have found a number of issues on our Centennial system.
Centennial is a RHEL 7.7 system, where the compiler is gcc 7.3.0

First if

-DENABLE_scipy=ON 

is used then

`building ‘scipy.integrate._quadpack’ extension

This can be bypassed by setting

-DENABLE_scipy=OFF

Thanks,

Hmm. Looks like a static library isn’t using -fPIC. This generally means that it cannot be combined with a shared library ever. I don’t know what is causing it not to be added in this case here. It looks like the Fortran objects are missing the (equivalent) flag?
