Okay, I get the point that static linking is evil, but what
would then be the proper way to compile a application which
is able to run across multiple Linux distro's ?
The first thing that comes in my mind is bundling your
own shared libraries with the application, but for that to
work the LD_LIBRARY_PATH= hack is needed, which is also evil.
I read this a couple of times, and I still don't know what problem
you're referring to. The usual technique is simply to provide a
wrapper script that sets up whatever environment is required and
exec's the application.
