comment How can I get a static C compiler?
Yes, I understand that. Producing a staticly linked compiler is a necessary first step, and one that the question seems to be asking about.

comment How can I get a static C compiler?
The errors I expected would have been due to missing static versions of libraries, like crt1.o, but the linker would complain immediately. If you're seeing the errors at runtime, then the binary wasn't staticly linked.

What did you expect keyboard-quit to do? The behavior you describe sounds normal to me.

comment “Permission denied” trying to get a file using TFTP
Insufficient data for meaningful analysis. How are you invoking the tftp server? Show us the inetd or xinetd entry. Show us the mode bits of the /tftproot directory.

comment How can I add invisible watermark to images on commandline?
My point is that JPEG conversion or any other lossy image compression algorithm would be able to remove such a watermark, not that the image necessarily had to start out as a JPEG.

comment How can I add invisible watermark to images on commandline?
I think your invisibility requirement is at odds with the purpose of watermarking. If the watermark is invisible to a normal viewer then it can probably removed by doing a couple of JPEG conversions on the image, since by design JPEG smooths away details that people won't miss.

comment SSH not terminated after exit when there is X Forward program
You can test this for yourself. Run ssh with -v and it will report X11 connections that are opened and closed.
