I would like to make a Sitemap, but my site has no Static pages . . all the pages are
dynamic, database driven.  Should I still bother making one to help in Search Engine Optimization?
The links would all be to the dynamic pages.  thanks

This is one reason why Google created this program - to help it find all your pages.  yes, you should bother in making one.

If you are creating a Google sitemap, that should be fine. A "regular" sitemap is sometimes beneficial for the end user.  I usualy end up using them a few times a week actually.  I would definitely recommend it

Nope, i dont think a sitemap is required.

However there is nothing wrong in doing it and If you do so make sure you keep the links less than 100 on a page.
