Description Philip Kovacs 2017-11-29 13:24:32 MST
The release notes for 17.11 state:

-- Add the configure option --with-shared-libslurm which will link to
   libslurm.so instead of libslurm.o thus reducing the footprint of all the
   binaries.

but using that switch you get a static build:

checking Link to libslurm.so instead of libslurm.o... static

The default appears to be a shared build (no configure switch used).

Use either --with-shared-libslurm or --without-shared-libslurm and you get static.
