Static builds might well be the right thing for your builds. I didn't 
mean to say I agree with that "Never" quote, but that page is good 
reading for understanding the caveats (size, memory etc).

Maybe Solar's approach below is better but I'm not sure how close you 
can mimic it when you throw OMP in the mix. Also, I suspect it's even 
trickier than to make it fully static.

I appreciate that you post the solutions you find for specific linking 
problems. Sorry I can't really help, I haven't tried a static build.
