How do you make a simple static build inside a tarball?

1. Make a static build.
2. Use 'tar -jcvf' to creat a tarball from the build's directory.

Is that what you were asking? ;)

How do you make a static build? The ./configure --help does mention static something or other, but I've never tried to make a static build.

Does this really make the resulting "whatever it is" actually run on any Linux distribution?

Can you provide an actual command line example for the compiling of babl, GEGL, and GIMP all statically linked together or whatever is required? Would glib and etc also need to be in the mix somehow?

I know Blender does provide a non-installed "extract and run", but it seems like magic.
