I am not necessarilly root on all the boxes, some may not be rpm based.
The compilation may be time consuming too.

Of course, but this decreases a lot the usefullness of fedora for me. Maybe
I am the only one to have these needs, but I hope not, it would be a bit

No, not at all. All the scientific community is affected, it's only
that there are just too few of them lurking around here. The typical
situation in natural sciences is that there are more Linux versions
around than there are employees, and sometimes statically linking is
the only way to distribute your code to the number cruncers.
