I am that "representative", and unfortunately, I stand corrected. I was
informed that even statically-linked Digital UNIX binaries could *legally*
*ONLY* be run on Digital UNIX systems. This has to do with royalty
agreements to third parties and "implicit" royalty payments inherent
in having purchased the Digital UNIX license. Basically, the DU license
agreement was drafted back when it was inconceivable that another platform
would appear that was binary-compatible with DU, so a few items were
relegated to the "fine print".......
So: Do not take your statically-compiled Digital UNIX binaries over to
your Linux system to run them.
Do not do this as often as you can.
