I tried this when you last brought it up. The build of tcl failed for
reasons I couldn't figure out. I only investigated for 20 mins then gave up.

 - Start from a glibc-2.2.5 host
 - build in the hint/book order (not Ryan's scripts)
 - watch it fail

It feels cleaner (and more educational) to me to have them static. Lets
leave it.
