Compiling VNCViewer statically
Tue Jun 3 05:48:46 2003
Hi! OK, so now I've finally compiled RealVNC under Mac OS X.
...now, how can I compile it STATICALLY, so I can distribute it to others
without having to worry if they are tech-savvy enough to install whatever
libs are needed?
I've tried all sorts of muckety-mucking about with the various *FLAGS
variables in configure.in and in the Makefiles... I cannot produce a
static vncviewer binary.
Can someone help me please?
And please, no lectures on why static linking is a Bad Thing. I've heard
it a trillion times. But try telling that to the newbie who says
"durrrrrh, it no worky", and when you get them to run it from the shell
(if you can talk them through that much), they say "durrrrrh, it say
somefin' about libFOO dot ess-oh dot ... durrrrh, what id dat?"...
Sorry, sometimes it's worth it to statically link. Like when releasing
something to the public. I love it when projects offer BOTH static and
Anyhow. Can someone help me? Again, please, no lectures.
