building smbtorture nonshared

I have no experience with static build but may offer some pointers to
ease working with the shared build.
The problem of using shared libs can be split into two parts:
1. Enumerating all of them - with samba this can be tedious as the
samba4 process splits the binaries into LOTS of shared libs.
2. Putting them on a remote machine in some non-standard isolated
location and causing the executable to find them

For the first problem, I came up with the attached script to print all
the samba shared libraries needed by a set of samba executables
(repeatedly scanning found shared libs until a closed set is reached).
I then use the output to copy the shared libs. I suppose that for the
second problem you can use either the configure --prefix, along with
rpath, or use LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

A typical way I copy the files using this script is: (built with
prefix = /, copying smbd, winbindd, and net along with their shared
DESTDIR=/my/samba/staging/dir make install /my/samba/staging/dir sbin/smbd sbin/winbindd
bin/net | rsync -lt --files-from - /my/samba/staging/dir/

The staging dir does not contain other binaries, so for example is not listed by the script because it is not found in the
staging dir.

I hope you find this useful,
