Description Benjamin Kahn 1999-05-07 16:01:08 EDT
All the binaries in /bin and /sbin should be linked
statically in case the /usr directory is not available, or
in case the system is having other problems.  By dynamically
linking these files, total system corruption can ruin your
whole day.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-08 10:40:59 EDT
The programs /sbin/sln, /sbin/sash, and /bin/rpm are statically
linked - that's enough to get out of almost any difficulty.

Statically linking *everything* in /bin and /sbin creates update
