How do I statically compile a src.rpm?
I am trying to statically compile a bunch of standard linux tools on a RH 8.0 box.
I have chosen to start with binutils-188.8.131.52.2 for some reason...
When I execute this command (notice their is no option for a static compile):
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/binutils-184.108.40.206.2 # ./configure -help
Usage: configure [OPTIONS] [HOST]
Options: [defaults in brackets]
--prefix=MYDIR install into MYDIR [/usr/local]
--exec-prefix=MYDIR install host-dependent files into MYDIR [/usr/local]
--help print this message [normal config]
--build=BUILD configure for building on BUILD [BUILD=HOST]
--host=HOST configure for HOST [determined via config.guess]
--norecursion configure this directory only [recurse]
--program-prefix=FOO prepend FOO to installed program names [""]
--program-suffix=FOO append FOO to installed program names [""]
--program-transform-name=P transform installed names by sed pattern P [""]
--site=SITE configure with site-specific makefile for SITE
--srcdir=DIR find the sources in DIR [. or ..]
--target=TARGET configure for TARGET [TARGET=HOST]
--tmpdir=TMPDIR create temporary files in TMPDIR [/tmp]
--nfp configure for software floating point [hard float]
--with-FOO, --with-FOO=BAR package FOO is available (parameter BAR)
--without-FOO package FOO is NOT available
--enable-FOO, --enable-FOO=BAR include feature FOO (parameter BAR)
--disable-FOO do not include feature FOO
Where HOST and TARGET are something like "sparc-sunos", "mips-sgi-irix5", etc.
Now when I grep for the keyword "static" in this dir, I get a good number of occurences of this keyword in a bood number of files. Most notably:
./ltmain.sh: -all-static do not do any dynamic linking at all
So how do I go about doing this?
Thanks as always!
