I won't like to descend so deep.
I've just like to demo the difference between static and
dynamic linking to our students, and came up here - LOL!

Anyway, it's been 19 years passed, so my guide seemed not so
Also Linux dropped the concept of static linking in practivce.

Thanks. . . I check out some more static libs for gcc.
I have just tried to build eglibc:

cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-mno-vsx"
make[2]: *** [/home/meres5/src/eglibc/ports/gmon/mcount.o] Error 1

All about
./configure --prefix=. . . . .
make install
