I just found that just about everything in /bin and /sbin is dynamic!  EW!  I liked the 4.x branch because it had a good /bin/sh compiled statically.  Is there a way to specify for make buildworld process to stick the -static flag in there somewhere?
thanks

/etc/mk.conf:
CFLAGS+=-static


Please do not rebuild all "static", 100+ programs with libc included will be too much...
please read Makefile and respective readme-s, and do not install these programs for running system, ie just make , not make install..
