Now all the LGPL needs is static linking. I'll be happy to distribute the code for the library, but it's a pain to have to give library instructions when it could just be a stand alone program.
"It's a pain." Boo-hoo. If you went to the copyright holder and offered them money for a non-LGPL licensed version that you could statically link against, you'd get it. Why do so many people complain about open source software they are getting for free?

Using the software under the terms of the LGPL is the price you pay for free-as-in-beer usage of it. If you don't like it, go link against some other library.
