>/bin an /sbin contains statically linked binaries :-)
I have at least 10 shells open. Unless I am greatly mistaken, running 10 static
bash's would be quite severe on memory use. Of course it would be very handy
to have a package that provides a static bash, and come to think of it, maybe there
should be one. But to replace all binaries in /bin and /sbin with static ones, is
IMHO simply too much, and it would only pay its use in weird situations, which are,
again IMHO, solvable just as well with shared binaries.
