Regarding Question 7 (enable dynamic by default on other platforms)
and OpenBSD: as long as it's easy to disable it again, I'll be happy
with *any* decision.

That's partially because currently we've even a patch explicitely
disabling shared library support in our ports/packages system (last
time I tried with shared lib support, I got some segfaults in the
midst of the build, and unfortunately I'm still too short of time
to debug/fix it).
