I guess that's a no :(

I have managed to get the right files in the right
places by following the demands of ldd, and I now have
useful utilities like df and mkdir working, but dialog
is still behaving the same way.  (Syntax error: "("

Is there anything different about dialog, from a
compilation point of view than those other utils?  A
binary is a binary, right?  
Hmmm....(chin scratch moment)
Actually, there is one major difference - looking at
the timestamps on those files, they must have been
compiled before I got them... I guess as part of the
ISO install.  
Is there a generic way to tell my compiler to build
static files?
