Any release of 3.1.x or before compiles essentially statically (it
still links to your libc, for example), but the internal libraries
like htcommon and htlib are linked statically.

In the 3.2 code, you may link these libraries statically with
"--disable-shared" as an option to configure. (With all configure
scripts, you may get a list of options by typing ./configure -?)

If you want to even link against libc statically, you'll have to edit
the Makefiles.
