Summary: Static build of libcurl does not work

Initial Comment:
Operating system is Linux 2.4.24smp Debian unstable, also
Linux 2.4.18smp RedHat 7.3, also
Linux 2.4.21smp Fedora Core 1.

Version of libcurl is 7.11.0

I have a program that uses libcurl to download files
via http, using
the curl_easy_... functions. Sequence is

curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 10);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FILETIME, 1);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS, 1);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION,
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION,
(up to here works fine)
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, url);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FILE, &file_info);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEHEADER, &file_info);

The interesting thing is, if I compile libcurl
dynamically, this works fine.
Also, if I compile an older version (7.10.5 of libcurl
with --disable-shared), this also works fine. However,
if I compile libcurl 7.11.0 with --disable-shared, the
curl_easy_perform line returns an error code.
