OK, bear with me, as I'm really a n00b at this. If I get the source
for the various libraries that are currently trying to dynamically link
to a particular lib, and compile them with the -static option, they
should be portable across distros?
Currently I'm distributing them in their own directory, and the
executable starts by munging the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable
to look at my directory first. Will this also work with
statically-compiled libraries, as you've described?
