Sorry, no. I won't create separate dlls if I can link that stuff
statically. Especially something that uses any kind of security
(openssl, sspi authentication, ...). The risk of malware interferring
with dlls is too high, and I also really hate the problems which arise
from using dlls (ever heard of "dll hell"?).

I don't understand the problems Joe mentioned: it would be a compile
time option. So why is he concerned about unix users? They simply won't
compile that stuff in!
