Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-05-27 13:58:06 EDT
rpm behavior depends on what kernel is booted and what glibc
is installed, so statically linking /bin/rpm is no longer viable.

For example, there is already in rpm-4.2 a statically linked
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmi, segfaults because of various NPTL/TLS runtime
