Ahh, yes --disable-shared is good. Then we can see unused linkage etc by
the binary. Only makes sense for that kind of tasks (and speeding up
compilation time), so you're probably right then. Might speed up
starting time(?), unless we run 'prelink'. However I'll fix the plugin
to always be built as a DSO.
