The last paragraph does not really make sense. You can link the apps
dynamically on your own machine, if it is running Solaris 2.4 or >, and
distribute them to anyone else who is running Solaris 2.4 on the same
processor. They will not run on 2.3, but everyone ought to get 2.4 anyway.
I wonder, does the SDK even include Xm.a ? Sun in general does not
recommend static linking, but the OSF does not allow you to distribute
Xm.so, while it is acceptable to distribute statically linked versions.
What is Sun's position on static linking Xm?
