Under hpux, non-dynamic executables aren't supported (i.e., we always
need an interpreter).  The dynamic loader defines some linker-defined
symbols that we don't have support for in the linker itself.  There may
be other reasons...

Thus, dynamically linked doesn't imply the presence of shared libraries.
