Message ID:
Is this intended, or just a side effect:

if one configures extensions as static

* On Win32:

    as best I can tell from the Makefile, the static extensions are linked
    into perl515.dll. perl.exe remains the same size

* On *nix (with -Duseshrperllib):

    the static extension code is compiled -fPIC
    it's linked into perl, not
