I have already completed a build with --enable-static.
However to get things to work I did two things: 

1) I replaced the gcl-2.6.1 tgz file in zips with the
more recent gcl-2.6.1-16 source from Camm's temporary
debian site. Since Camm had provided a patch in the
new version to handle readline in the static case.

2) I upgraded my gcc compiler to version 3.3.2 (the
newest version) since other emails also indicated that
there were possible problems with older versions of gcc.

It now seems to work. 

I was about to upload a binary to the files section for
others to try (since I only have RedHat Linux boxes here,
moving the static binary between them is not a real test),
but then Juergen pointed out that we still have three
missing algebra files, so I decided to include those files
before uploading the new static binary.

I will also proceed as you suggest and modify the
Makefile.pamphlet to include a linux-static chuck, however
I have to think about this a bit more since the change to
the GCL configuration option is done in the lsp/Makefile.
So I think this means that it will have to be controlled
by the GCLVERSION environment variable. E.g. maybe


and then it will use that to pull the right chunk
out of the lsp/Makefile.pamphlet. Right?
