Which sort-of hints shipping static libs is a short-term workaround and
energy would be better spend making tools like eclipse integrate our
best-of-breed infrastructure (autoconf, rpm, yum, mock whatever)
transparently so these people don't have to spend time on plumbing to
produce modern sofwtare.

That would help adoption with the huge Visual Basic & Java crowd too
