Compiling limited universal binaries for Linux and MacOSX
I am developing some open-source bioinformatics software that uses gnuplot to visualize sequence alignment results. I'd like to be able to distribute gnuplot with my program without having to rely on the users having to install gnuplot themselves. My software calls on gnuplot to produce plots using the pngcairo terminal. I know that OS X doesn't like static linking of binaries (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5259249/creating-static-mac-os-x-c-build) but I think the only library that I'd really need to static link would be the cairo libraries. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to how I might be able to manage producing "universal-ish" binaries of gnuplot for OS X and Linux platforms with only a very limited set of statically-linked terminal options? If I have to find another option, I will, but I thought I'd ask first.
