Not sure what you mean. Of course any C program can be compiled 
statically. I am just looking for the right options. Are you saying 
beam.smp can't or shouldn't because it's being launched as part of 
"operation"? It shouldn't matter since beam.smp isn't a library but an 
executable. And as far as a release goes it should be launched once then 
be available to any tool or script through a shell or network connection.
