keep them static anyways. it will save you a lot of headaches. you don't want 
to link dynamically to a glibc that runs on an intel to later on be run on a 
ppc with a glibc-ppc build. I am not sure if it should work but I can see 
that it causes problems.

wait a while till more software has had the time to update and glibc has been 
fixed. there are quite a few problems with it
