It needs (re)building with -fPIC compiler flag.  I can help fix that, but 
F-9 has reached EOL, and no further updates are allowed.

Why doesn't asterisk work with the shlibs provided by uw-imap-devel?  That's 
how fedora's stock asterisk packages are built (begs the question, why 
aren't you using fedora's asterisk?)
