i'm new to stali and hope this is the right place for my question.
Currently i'm creating a tool cd with static compiled binaries. I'd like to use the cd when i have a possible compromised system. The cd would provide me with tools i can rely on and which i can use for investigation, because it does not use any software from the possible compromised system.
I succeeded already in creating a static version of netcat. With other binaries i have problems. While searching on the web, i come across stali.
I thought this might be very useful for my purpose. I downloaded http://dl.suckless.org/stali/stali.tar.bz2 and mounted it following the guide in the readme file. Finally i chrooted in it.
But when i try now ldd on some binaries, it shows me the needed *.so files. I thought using static binaries don't need shared objects. Am i wrong ?
And all the binaries in /bin and /sbin are symlinks to busybox.
Can anyone explain me if i can use stali for my purpose ? Do i have to compile every binary i'd like to have ? Or is there a possibility to extract static binaries from busybox ?

Thanks for any hint.
