The first Linux download block says "Linux (x86, glibc-2.2, static, gcc)" which implies 
that all three packages (-standard, -max, -debug) are staticly linked which is not true.

Only the -standard package is staticly linked, -max and -debug are dynamicly linked
as they both include support for user defined functions (UDF).

How to repeat:
download the "Max" tarball from the "Linux (x86, glibc-2.2, static, gcc)" download section,
unpack it and do a "ldd" on the binaries 

Suggested fix:
change description text
