libssl SSL Support Secure communications
libdb4.8 Berkeley DB Blockchain & wallet storage
libboost Boost C++ Library
miinupnpc UPnP Support Optional firewall-jumping support

miniupnpc may be used for UPnP port mapping. It can be downloaded from
http://miniupnp.tuxfamily.org/files/. UPnP support is compiled in and
turned off by default. Set USE_UPNP to a different value to control this:
USE_UPNP= No UPnP support - miniupnp not required
USE_UPNP=0 (the default) UPnP support turned off by default at runtime
USE_UPNP=1 UPnP support turned on by default at runtime

Licenses of statically linked libraries:
Berkeley DB New BSD license with additional requirement that linked
software must be free open source
Boost MIT-like license
miniupnpc New (3-clause) BSD license

Versions used in this release:
GCC 4.3.3
OpenSSL 0.9.8g
Berkeley DB 4.8.30.NC
Boost 1.37

sed -i 's/<db_cxx.h>/<db4.8\/db_cxx.h>/' src/*
sed -i 's/-Bstatic/-Bdynamic/' makefile.unix
make -f makefile.unix
strip bitcoind

The release is built with GCC and then "strip bitcoin" to strip the debug
The release is built with GCC and then "strip bitcoind" to strip the debug
symbols, which reduces the executable size by about 90%.
