Then you ow;don't be dependent on libel. Do you have any energy to take this approach? It would take a few days, but it would be great to say goodbye to the current unix/linux build system.
I understand this position. So, we both don't like the current situation, but we have still different opinions on a good solution. I don't have the energy to dive into a solution wouldn't support fullheartedly. I hope you understand, no intent to upset anyone.
Besides that, building SqueakSSL static and with special link options would only be necessary for Non-Distro-specific Builds, like the ones we have now.
Debian/CentOS-integrated builds (wich we really should commence…) should never statically link if possible…
