Well Geir insists that we should know what we are linking against, so he 
prefers static libraries. I don't like it very much (it is contrary to 
Gentoo way :) which is to link against anything which is installed on 
the system by the user) but I can understand this POV.

The problem is that on many distributions static libs are built without 
-fPIC and while on x86 it may still work ok, on x86_64 it definitely 
doesn't work. So if we decide that we should use static linking we'll 
have to check in prebuilt the binaries into classlib source tree just 
like we did with ICU (although ICU libraries are dynamic, not shared). I 
see no other way to do static linking.
