Statically Linked Photon Applications

I’m trying to build a statically linked Photon application. I’m getting link errors for even a trivial application. I’m working with QNX 6.3.0 on an x86 platform.

I created a new application with only a PtWindow base, no other widgets, and no callbacks. It builds and runs with dynamically linked libraries. According to the documentation, you should be able to build a statically linked application by setting the Link Libraries field to “-Bstatic” in the Build and Debug Options tab under Project Properties. The following is the beginning of the link errors I get when I try it.

make -j 1 -Cx86 -fMakefile

Any ideas? Thanks, Dennis
