Been doing static builds for rtorrent for quite a long time...

Shouldn't be too much of an issue.

This one might be tricky :-(

I'm afraid there's no clean way of dealing with this other than

a) Patching the sources to make them buildable with old libs
b) Doing static builds against new libs

Even though b) might not look too clean, a) is just unpractical (read
impossible). Which leaves us with static builds which one can satisfy
(Python 2.6 is clearly a no-go)...
