    Question Building For Mulitple Platforms

    Im working on a program that I want to run on multiple paltforms but I want to release it as a binary. I build statically but when I do a 'ldd' on the binary afterwards I notice that some of the libs I use like libssl is still a shared object. Does this mean I have to rebuild any included libs statically as well

    Anyone know of a good site that talks about building *nix binaries?

    well building nix binary's is a hell..
    the options as far as I know are
    1. You could opt on building a vast array of different bins (redhat suse mandrake debian slackware etc)
    2. You could try to make a static binary
    3. You could provide the libs (possible copyright problems (gpl))

    I have no experience with either (just inventarised the options a while back)
