I noticed today that there's a magic switch for 'ld' on HP-UX that tells
it to search a particular library and ignore restrictions about
all-static builds. So the following works -- or rather, lets the stuff

env CC='cc -Ae -Wl,-l:libdld.sl' \
    "./configure" \
    "--prefix=/home/brane/svn/inst" \
    "--with-berkeley-db=/home/brane/svn/db4" \
    "--disable-shared" \
    "--enable-all-static" \


$ ./subversion/clients/cmdline/svn --version
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: _SYSTEM_ID (data) from /usr/lib/libc.2
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved module for symbol: _memset (code) from /usr/lib/libc.2

Is there any particular reason that the client must be
--enable-all-static? Coldn't you just build a normal --disable-shared
--disable-dso, and use dynamic libs for system libraries? Seems like a
lot ltess pain.
