[stunnel-users] Static Version Built?

Okay, I think I have a static version of Stunnel now.  Thanks to help 
and answers from Jan and Keven!

I did this:

./configure --with-ssl=/usr --enable-static --disable-shared 

I'm not sure about the "--with-ssl" option, but it didn't seem to want 
to work without it.

So I have a few questions:

1) How can I be sure it is static?
2) If it isn't static and I run it on a system that does not have all it 
needs, will it give me errors immediately, or only if a subroutine 
needs a library that isn't there.
3) Does the "--disable-libwrap" or anything else remove any features?
4) Does using the "--with-ssl" option make it use the libs on my system 
and make it non-static?
5) My "best guess" is that to install a static version, I just copy over 
the files src/stunnel and src/libstunnel.la to /usr/bin and /usr/lib, 
respectively.  Is that right?  (And, of course, copy man files to the 
right place.)

Thanks -- I hope I'll be done with all these questions soon.
