Thank you Antony. It is a nice article indeed, very instructive.
I see now my understanding of static linking was terribly bad and I was
taking the wrong path.
So, I just compiled scp dynamically and will test it out soon on
But with this :
$ ldd ./scp
libc.so.1 => /lib/libc.so.1
libm.so.2 => /lib/libm.so.2
... I guess there should not be any issue...
I will give a short update here soon.
Thanks again to all of you for nice support.
