Recently, VirtualBox builds started failing with messages like

[ 4886s] This executable must be position independent.  Check that it is
built with

[ 4886s] (none): E: badness 60000 exceeds threshold 1000, aborting.

It seems a recent change in rpmlint has caused these failures.

I think changes in python. I hit that yesterday:
https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/622940

The full distro should be rebuilt IMO. There are many hidden failures
due to py 3.6 -> 3.7 change. Like this, gdb and others.
