Ticket #198 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Enable building of shared libraries in generic tarball
|Reported by:||dogmaT||Owned by:||MtnViewMark|

Current HP doesn't include nor it does support building shared libraries. When someone is starting a project using HP and needs to switch to shared libraries it actually becomes a roadblock.
Lately I was installing Jenkins (continuous integration server) and had to have a separate HP installations. After few iterations project had to--for deployment reasons--switch to shared libraries. I solved this by patching HP's generic tarball. This approach worked not only for current version 2011.4.0.0 but also for older 2011.2.0.x.
Patch is included. It introduces new --enable-shared options for configure script.
