I don't know what "mysql_util" is. I point this out not to be pedantic,
but because I'm genuinely uncertain what it is you're talking about.
I do know what "mysqlpp_util" is, but it's just a convenience library
for use by MySQL++'s example programs. It is meant for no other use, so
I don't know why you care how it's linked. Furthermore, the fact that
you're seeing a dynamic library is what's odd here, not the fact that
you can't get a static one: being a convenience library, it should only
be static. This makes me think you not talking about mysqlpp_util at
all, but are instead talking about some other library that isn't
Why do you want to link MySQL++ statically anyway? Its license says
that the only way you can do this in a closed-source product[*] is if
you never distribute the binaries. This is why MySQL++ defaults to
building a dynamic library on all platforms.
