figured this was more a question about build details, not how to use it. I
assumed "Open Discussion" was more an end-user forum. Is it also used as

CentOS box and the few older shared libraries the static build depends on
should work? That sounds promising. I could then put the -debug RPM and the
sources on the deployment box to chase any problems.
I generally prefer to at least have the potential to "build my own" because
if something goes wrong, I want the ability to chase down a fix myself and
then submit a patch. (I really felt handcuffed in this regard when using
