I think the sizes are the same, except that now with dynamic linking,
the whole size is split into 5 sharable libraries.

There is another problem however, I think that's a result of the
shared-lib thing:
Teamwork doesn't work any more. KDevelop crashes whenever a message is
received in some dynamic_cast. Maybe we can have a look into that at
the hackathon. :)

What do you mean by "force cmake to use the static version". You mean
that he problem that forced us to make the libraries dynamic(something
with amd64) is solved?
