I finally bit the bullet and compiled the monster. It seems to be
working. I have couple of questions.

1. How do I know whether I built static or shared libraries?

I just configured the whole gcc suite with

--prefix=/home/raju/software/compiledSoftware/gcc_4.2.0_20070514 2>&1 | tee

2. Can I take the compiled binaries i.e.
~/software/compiledSoftware/gcc_4.2.0_20070514 onto some other Linux
machine and run the executables there? How should I configure the
code, to get this kind of functionality?
