After that configure unbound to use your just built > ldns with --with-ldsn=<somewhere>, thats all ;) Thanks, I've already solved the problem, but it's still a valid complain that "--enable-static-exe" switch of unbound configuration script does not work even if you check it out that it's documented as: --enable-static-exe enable to compile executables statically against event, ldns libs, ...... Or maybe I misunderstand the description here, that this option only "enables" to do so, but not forcing it?
