wouldn't most of this hoopla go away if we built our tools static
instead of dynamic? also, it would allow us to not build the shared
libs when initially building the tools...
I've also thought about digging in to see about using your x86 box to
do a buildworld, but end up with alpha or sparc binaries... I think
this would help the porting effort among other things...
anybody have any objections to these ideas going into the tree (after
testing of course :) )?
