Can anyone provide any further clarification on this? The indicated topic doesn't provide much help. And exactly where would I specify "-static"? To the configure script? How? Or to the make command?Unfortunately the gcc.exe it provides seems to create binary's that require files like "libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll" and "libwinpthread-1.dll" (etc.?) to accompany your executable, so can cause some difficulty there. You can remove some files to remove dependencies on things like "libbzip2.dll" see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3688 and possibly avoid the libgcc.dll requirement by using "-static" at linking time.
Thanks for any assistance.
