It works great on Solaris too. Even better, since it doesn't have problems with mandatory locking on tmpfs.
I don't know if static linking will bring any benefits (or that it works with ClamAV, never tried). You might as well package the correct dynamic libraries together with HAVP, if you want easy packages. ClamAV API is not that stable, but only major versions (0.92->0.93) are supposed change the library version or functionality. So recompiling is not needed very often.
