Question how to build e2fsprogs-1.35.tar.gz statically


hello,
i need info about how to build e2fsprogs statically, which has all the programs like

badblocks, blkid, chattr, compile_et, debugfs, dumpe2fs, e2fsck, e2image, e2label, findfs, fsck, fsck.ext2, fsck.ext3, logsave, lsattr, mk_cmds, mke2fs, mkfs.ext2, mkfs.ext3, mklost+found, resize2fs, tune2fs, and uuidgen.

i tried to build statically but i am able to do this only for
fsck and mke2fs.static.

i think before executing this
'make LDFLAGS_STATIC=-static'
i have to set some variables . i dont know that.

if i did
./configure
and
make LDFLAGS_STATIC=-static

i am able to get only 2 programs i. e. fsck and mke2fs.static.

please help me

regards
shankar

Usually you specify any extra flags like 'export CFLAGS=-static' before you ./configure --options (and add --enable-static=yes just to make sure). If it still won't work please post your configure line and any errors.
