Statically linked plugins

Hi all,

I’ve just joined the list.

I have a question about static linking. While I’m working my way through the archive to see if it has already been answered, I’ll ask here in case someone can help.

After configure && make I find that plugins (for example check_apt) are dynamically linked, needing and, etc., according to objdump.

I tried configure LDFLAGS=”-static” && make, and I can see -static added to the libtool command line, but I still get a dynamically linked exe needing the same shared libraries.

What am I doing wrong? (Or misunderstanding?)

Thanks in advance.
