Problem with statically linking libmysql and libmysqlpp libraries

For some reason I'd like to statically link some mysql libraries. I am using the following compiler options:
g++ <<blah blah>> -static -lmysqlclient -lmysqlpp

I am not sure I am using the right compiler options. Anyhow I get the following errors:

/usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a(mf_pack.o)(.text+0x623): In function `unpack_dirname':
: warning: Using 'getpwnam' in statically linked applications requires at runtime the shared libraries from the glibc version used for linking

Regarding 'compress()' and 'uncompress()': It seems that you're missing 'zlib' - try to add '-lz' to your linker options.

The other warnings are just warnings. If your program is going to run on the same system you built on you'll be fine, but presumably you are linking statically because you want to be able to distribute your binary. The problem is that the glibc runtime invokes shared libraries. You'll need to find an alternative C runtime, if that's no good for you.
