So it still uses libraries (or not a compiled library, but source or
headers or whatever) anyway? If that is so, then from what I
understand, specifying would force it to be non-static and not
specifying it and using "--enable-static" and "--disable-shared"
should produce a static binary. Do I understand correctly?
