[gambit-list] Static GSI

That's what file and ldd report on gsi compiled  on Ubuntu Linux
(no static/dynamic related options supplied to configure):

file gsi

gsi: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

 ldd gsi 
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xb7f9e000)
        libutil.so.1 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libutil.so.1 (0xb7f88000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0xb7f84000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0xb7f5e000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7e0f000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7f9f000)

The problem is that such an executable may be incompatible with some  
another  Linux  - if it has some older version of libc, for example.  
I've tried explicit --disable-shared just in case, but it does not make gsi

Best regards,

I'd like to compile Gambit  interpreter as a static executable.
I think by default it's static (unless you configure with --enable-shaared).
