It's not _that_ big of a deal, just that I'm already compiling
libtiff and libgeotiff (and others) statically into my app, and I
don't need them currently in GDAL itself. If I get further into
trying to get GDAL statically compiled I may do some tweaks to GDAL
so that it's configure finds my libraries. I just didn't want to
take the hit for compiling the same library in there twice.
For right now I'm off on other things 'cuz I couldn't manage to get
GDAL to behave for me. Under the LSB compiler front-ends I can't
compile GDAL without libtool, which is one flag you guys used in
your working examples.
