Are you sure you want to abandon the benefits of dynamic linking?


If you can provide glibc on "the device", can you not provide the other

If you still want a static smbclient executable:

  $ apt-get source samba

  $ tar zxf samba_3.0.24.orig.tar.gz

  $ cd samba-3.0.24/source

  $ ./configure --disable-pie CFLAGS=-static

  $ make

  $ ldd bin/smbclient
  not a dynamic executable

  $ bin/smbclient
