Do we have a list of what spells will install staticly? I've had several

spell always compile staticly w/o having to use the sorcery option?

Sorcery option ? There is a sorcery option? :)

The only way that I've done it is by adding stuff to the "configure options" (ie, --static, or --enable-static, or whatever the particular spell uses).

Since static things require other static things, it really makes depedancy stuff quite ugly, since you have to figure it out yourself.

Ideally, I would really like a "static" flag, that can be used within depends, so that you can build a particular spell as static, and it will build all the "dependancies above it" as static as well.

Each spell would have to be modified that allows a static build, and slowly change all the spells to be able to build in a static (and shared) way.

Anyway, hope what I am saying is clear to some degree, or at least opaque.
