Re: gcc-3.1 build successful in hppa64-hp-hpux11.00

There is some problem here but the excutables are definitely not
static.  Even executables built with "-static" are still dynamic.
I believe that "shared" in this context means that the text of
shared libraries linked with the executable is shareable with
other executables.  Is this what you want?

Try chatr instead of ldd.  You will see that the executables
are not static.

It may be that ld isn't setting the file magic correctly.

This is a binutils issue and not a gcc issue.

I suggest using the current cvs binutils.  2.12 is missing an important
patch for hppa64.
