I guess maybe I should be asking more on bsdi mailing list.
For example under BSD/OS:
$ ls -l /bin/cat
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 2704 Oct 8 2000 /bin/cat
$ ldd /bin/cat
$ shlist /bin/cat
$ file /bin/cat
/bin/cat: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, statically
linked (uses shared libs), stripped
Looking in binary I see "/shlib/libc_s.4.2.0"
$ ls -l /shlib/libc_s.4.2.0
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 746273 Oct 8 2000 /shlib/libc_s.4.2.0
The man pages say:
- Statically linked shared libraries are binary files created by linking
together all of the objects in a normal archive library, along with a
jump table and an initialization routine.
- It has nothing to do with dynamic shared libraries, whose names end in `.so'.
- Binaries that link to static shared libraries have an `interpreter' but
no dynamic linking information.
Just to clarify this again: does our NetBSD ldd and libtool already offer
