Hi Jeff,

To get the correct linking options for linking in the libraries you can
use something like:

$ pkg-config --static --libs sqlite3
-lsqlite3 -lm -ldl -lpthread

Then, you can link the program:

$ csc -static -L -lsqlite3 -L -lm -L -ldl -L -lpthread test.scm

You'll note that the libraries are still linked dynamically (with `ldd`).
To make it fully static, use -L -static:

$ csc -static -L -static -L -lsqlite3 -L -lm -L -ldl -L -lpthread test.scm

For PostgreSQL, I used pkg-config --static --libs pq, but this told me
to use -lgssapi_krb5 and there is no static version of that library in
Debian at least.  So I think you can't link it statically on Debian.
