Good, I'm glad to hear it.

Interesting.  What do you need to change?  Does it work okay with a
different set of linking options?

Not presently, sorry.  I agree it would be useful, but we're actually
thinking of going the other direction, and reducing the application
support.  (They'd probably still be distributed by someone, just not
as part of the core package.)

They are, but at least with static linking, you can try the programs
out without having run "make install".  The default is static linking,
and I occasionally forget I configured a tree for shared libraries
when I go to test some changes....
