To Tony:

Thx for your response, I'll check out these scripts when I'm back at work.

BTW, I noticed your multi-target and multi-rebase branches… I think its idea would be nice yet a little bit confused about how it works and how to use it……Also do you have any plans placing dynamic building into your multi-target infrastructure?

> The general way would be to toggle the "--disable-shared --enable-static" configure options, but you'd need to watch out for patches that are specific to static linking (e.g. atk-1-DllMain.patch, pthreads-1-fixes.patch) and different configuration systems (any of the cmake packages, qt, zlib).
