Okay, so I obviously am missing something then. Any pointers
on how to get started down the static path? I looked for
'static' and all I found was some old commented out code in
the make ... nothing in the docs for example.
I'm talking about the DBD::mysql piece. I'm missing how that
can be static and then become part of a Perl program ... I
believe all other Perl modules I use that have a C code piece
build that piece as a shared library so it can be loaded
dynamically. Maybe I'm wrong about that though.
I am using a static mysqlclient.a -- I've tried that and the
shared version I built from source. The make assumes a static
mysqlclient.a by default and that's where most of my attempts
have been directed.
